George's Photos ca. 1896 page 3 of 5

More of George Potter's photos from the period he was trying photography as a profession (ca. 1896, at age 21 or so).  These photos are mounted on the same cardboard backing as the Findley Lake photos and are of approximately the same size.

"Midnight on Bookenshaw Creek"
(Probably Brokenstraw Creek, near Corry PA.  George's spelling was usually accurate; the creek name was likely never something he saw spelled out)

A picnic, although the bent-trunk tree and its reflection are the main feature.  Also Brokenstraw Creek?

Skinny-dipping in some old swimming hole.
