Adelaide Waterbury - Photos and Grave Stones

The following black and white photographs were found in a scrap book created by Adelaide Waterbury in 1897 and 1898. Personal photography was a relatively new thing at that time. Adelaide worked in a store where cameras were sold. It looks like she may have borrowed a camera, and then had the film developed by an amateur photographer. The prints were not fixed thotoughly and have lost most of their contrast.

The color photographs of grave stones were taken at the Spring Grove Cemetery in Darien, Conn. in 1980.
