Scope and Content Note

The Lucius H. Cathan Photograph Collection primarily consists of glass negatives of views of the Brattleboro & Whitehall Railroad in Vermont and portraits of unidentified individuals. Included are views of landscapes, unidentified buildings, and the Cathan family. An ambrotype, a glass positive and a photographic print are also present. During processing, image descriptions were written on negative sleeves; those which have been provided by N-YHS staff have been written in brackets.


The collection is divided into two series based on size:

  1. Series I: Small Format
  2. Series II: Large Format
