More old cyanotypes of early Black Mountain

 The Vance Place - a famous North Carolina governor during the Civil War was Zebulon Vance. I don't know whichVance this cyanotype is of.

 A photo of a painting of the falls where Elisha Mitchell died. He had been surveying to prove that Mt. Mitchell was the highest peak east of the Mississippi.

 I'll share some more about the many railroad tunnels

Not sure where this is...


  1. These old scrapbooks are fascinating. The forerunners of blogs, I suppose.

  2. That's a wonderful collection. Cyanotype filters are available in post processing software, but I think it is best limited to its historical place.

  3. Hello,

    What a beautiful place. I would like to find that waterfall. Wonderful scrapbook and images. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week ahead!

  4. The falls were a wonder even then.
