An appealing album of a snowy autumn visit to a camp in rural Maine. The photographs depict camp life, views of the camp buildings and surrounding scenery, the train station in Portage, Maine, teams of horses, and many pictures, some humorous, of the visitors, including more than a dozen deer hunting pictures, evidence of a very successful hunt. Members of the party are listed on the printed title leaf as: General Henry A. Bishop, Mrs. Henry A. Bishop, Henry A. Bishop, Jr., Mr. & Mrs. Waldo C. Bryant, Miss Sybil Nash, Roderick McNeil, and Captain W. S. Green. Henry Alfred Bishop (1860-1934), of Bridgeport, Conn., was a member of the Yale class of 1884, and at the time the album was produced, he was a prominent director of several Eastern railroads and companies.
