Scope and Content

The Central Kentucky photograph albums (dated 1907-1920; 0.2 cubic feet; 145 items) consist of two albums of photographs depicting scenes in Boyle, Mercer, Jessamine, and McCreary counties.

Places shown include Dick's (Dix) River, Wilson's Run, the Knobs, Cumberland Falls, Camp Nelson, Hickman Valley, and Salt River. Notable subjects include covered bridges, mills, residences, hemp farming, and quarries. The photographs show High Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge as well as other unidentified bridges, several of them are covered bridges. Additionally, the albums contain several photographs featuring people, such as two depicting Jim Clay and Anne Clay at Mrs. Darbishire's house (items 43a and 57) and one which shows a small crowd of people at a river baptism (item 72).
