Collections Sneak Peek: Connecticut Governor Abiram Chamberlain’s 1904 Visit …

I’m excited about this collection! It has several photos of Connecticut Governor Abiram Chamberlain’s and his large delegation’s 1904 visit to Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain. His trip by special passenger cars proceeded the dedication ceremony of the Connecticut Pavilion of the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, MI.

Included in an album are many photographs of the fairgrounds and dedication. I cannot wait to share all of the images. It will take some time, as additional research and over thirty photographs are needed to be scanned.

This image is exciting because it’s taken from atop Umbrella Rock, looking down at the delegation party and guests on Point Lookout on October 16, 1904. It’s the first image I’ve encountered with a view from Umbrella Rock.
