18 x 20. This now celebrated spot has its stillness broken by the clang and clamor of a mill, which, with its bridge and clear waters, overshadowed by willows, make this a most exquisite subject for the photographer's art. This passe partout embraces a richly colored and harmonious photograph, prepared expressly for the Association. It makes a very charming picture, and serves to show how closely the new and wonderful art of photography and hand coloring is pursuing most successful reproductions on cameos. The spot here chosen is the scene before midnight excursions of the Headless Horseman, in Irving's "Legend of Sleepy Hollow." [P. 195.]
