This is the fifth post displaying images that William Lyman Thomas collected around 1911 for his landmark two volume set. For those who may not have been following this blog, these images are from the collection of a direct descendant of WLT and his wife, Kate Compton Sutton Thomas. Many of these images have never been shown in public before.
As has been my habit, I’ll include scans of the backs of most of the photos as well. Thomas’ notations and instructions to the printer allow us a look at part of his construction process that we’d otherwise never see.
As I have said many times before, much thanks to the Thomas family descendants for sharing their most important historic artifacts with us all.
I believe there are still enough of these images that Thomas collected for his books to fill another post. Aside from these there are still quite a few personal photographs and documents that I have not shown yet. Stay tuned.
I hope you all enjoy this wonderful weather we’ve been having. Happy Easter!
