Wallace Dow

Souvenir of Blue Lakes, Lake County, California. Views by Wallace H. Dow, ca. 1895

This album appears to have been professionally produced as a promotional tool for the Blue Lake area around 1895. It has a title stamped on the cover and printed captions for some of the photographs. These captions are reprinted in the container listing. Supplied captions in the container listing are bracketed. A printed page at the beginning of the album identifies the photographer as Wallace H. Dow. No information is available on him. Two of the photographs have captions identifying the photographer as E. Verdier and H. Wambold (#5 in this set). Subjects include views of the Blue Lakes; hotels and houses in the area; swimming and boating; rural views; groups of visitors; and a view of the Saratoga Valley.
