View From Talbot Hill 1910 Looking East

(click on image to enlarge)
A very rare postcard, postmarked 1911. This photo (looking west) was taken around spring or summer of 1910 from the front porch of the house on top of Talbot Hill looking down towards Camp Jewell, on West Shore Road. The Camp Jewell waterfront is about at the middle of the photo. The house on Talbot Hill was abandoned at least 25 years ago and has been removed. This view today from the exact location is not possible due to the overgrowth of the tree tops. You can also see more sand on the shoreline, indicating the level of the dam at the time.
