Container List

Cooper, William A

Container 1     Title Date
Box: 1 10 gelatin silver prints, 8 x 10 in. and smaller. Unidentified portraits.
undated
Box: 14 4 panoramic photographs of Catskill Mountain House and the surrounding area; 1 of an unidentified town at a river junction; 1 of Victorian houses

Scope and Contents

The photograph of Victorian houses is not explicitly signed or otherwise noted as a Cooper, but was found with the others in 2022 and so was left in place.

undated
Folder: FF-1 5 panoramic photographs of views from Brooklyn across the East River to lower Manhattan

Scope and Contents

None of the photos explicitly indicate they are by Cooper, but one can be found attributed to him on the Library of Congress site: [New York from Brooklyn Heights, panoramic view] at https://www.loc.gov/resource/ds.04403/. The others appear to have been taken from roughly the same spot, but at a slightly different time as different boats are on the river. The items were found together in the stacks in 2022 and were left together here.

circa 1911
