About this Collection

This album appears to have been professionally produced as a promotional tool for the Blue Lake area around 1895. It has a title stamped on the cover and printed captions for some of the photographs. These captions are reprinted in the container listing. Supplied captions in the container listing are bracketed. A printed page at the beginning of the album identifies the photographer as Wallace H. Dow. No information is available on him. Two of the photographs (no. 1 and no. 26) have captions identifying the photographer as E. Verdier and H. Wambold, respectively. Subjects include views of the Blue Lakes; hotels and houses in the area; swimming and boating; rural views; groups of visitors; and a view of the Saratoga Valley.... View collection guide.
