Catalogue Note

In a letter dated March 5, 1900 to M. Alfred Newhouse, the artist wrote of the Ramapo Valley, "there was a number of old rustic bridges--built by the miners--to team their iron ore to the smelting mills: some were very picturesque--but in the course of time they have mostly passed away."
