Notes:
This site was the summer home of Elton Gray Cushman and his wife Emily Frances Jenks Cushman. It was located along the coast and its high front porch took advantage of water views. It is not clear whether the 16 images in the album document completed Sears design and installation work or simply site characteristics recorded prior to any work being done. Some of the images depict adjacent properties. Although the Cushman house, which was on Bay Road in Barrington is no longer there, one of the other houses appearing in the photographs has survived.
Persons associated with the site include Thomas W. Sears (landscape architect and photographer, circa 1910-1914) and Elton Gray Cushman and Emily Frances Jenks Cushman (former owners, circa 1910-1914).
Summary:
The folder includes information about Mrs. Cushman.
