Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

Consists of 15 photographs taken in the area of the old Kingston Mill. There are some photographs of the area around the mill building. Some of these show the mill with sluice gates and the dam in the distance. Six of these images are of what is probably the Gaging Station, though it may also be a boiler. Work began at Kingston Mill July 5, 1905 and continued until February 11, 1907. There are two notable images among these six: one depicts an African American man sitting on top of the boiler, and another depicts the same man inside the boiler peering through an opening.

Includes negative numbers 672, 673, 674, 675, 819, 820, 823, 824, 826, 827, 844, 845, 846, and unnumbered negatives a-b.
