Lantern slide maker:
Stanley, H. E.
1 lantern slide: b&w ; 3.25 x 4 in
United Kingdom, England, Yorkshire, New Earswick
[between 1905 and 1915]
A nearly identical view of Poplar Grove, probably taken at the same time, appears in John Nolen, New Ideals in the Planning of Cities, Towns, and Villages (New York: American City Bureau, 1919), p. 80. It is possible that Nolen was the photographer of both images. However, although Nolen traveled with Thomas W. Sears on his 1906 trip to England and the Continent, they did not visit Yorkshire, so it is unlikely that either of these images was taken on that trip. The lantern slide was made by H. E. Stanley, 290 Westminster Street, Providence, Rhode Island.
