The obelisk is in the Old Stone Fort Cemetery. The early photos family homes, the Catskill Mountain House, street scenes, countryside, farmland, a waterfall, hedgerows, and a Civil War statue (near Schoharie?), "A.C Blackburn, Pharmacist," with an sign advertising sporting goods and "Kodak", the proprietor at the door. Next are photos of Bennington County Court House and church next door. some of the homes photographed are very grand. Gilson Adjustable Album patented 1897.
