About the Camp Phillips Photographs

This collection contains a series of original black and white photographs taken circa 1902-1903. They are well-composed and focused photographs that capture the clubhouse's exterior and interior, various boats, dories, and dingies on and around the lake, and students engaged in various activities such as canoing, camping, and fishing. Also included are photographs of a log cabin in Eastbrook, views of Mt. Desert and Bar Harbor, and photographs of the battleship USS Texas. There are 46 photographs in all, most measuring 3 x 3 1/2 to 3 1/2 x 4 1/2, affixed to the leaves of a contemporary black cloth-bound album. Most of the photographs are captioned in the manuscript and all are in good condition.
