Camp Asquam (Holderness, New Hampshire)
One of the oldest camps in the United States, Camp Asquam in its original incarnation as a camp for boys operated from the 1880s until about 1912 (its facilities and name were absorbed by other camps, including a girls' camp). It is likely that Thomas W. Sears was working as a counselor at the camp when he took these photographs. A reminiscence of life at the camp in the early 1890s is Robert Dunn, "The Real Boys' Camp," The Outing Magazine, Vol. 50 (April 1907-September 1907), pp. 415-424.
