Default Sunday Morning Post... Card. Where is the mount? 12-15-2019

The Paddle Steamer Mount.
I may do Monday Morning Mounts if there is interest because I have so many Mt. Washington Postcards. I chose this for This mornings post because of the view.

Who can identify where this postcards image is viewed from.
(I don't know) but I will think about it.
You tell me!

Default Wolfeboro Bay?

To me it looks like Barndoor Island behind The Mount and Rattlesnake Island in the background. Gunstock all the way in the back??

Default Sorry not for Sale

Hi
No. Im sorry but I am not currently interested in selling any cards, but would like to share them with everyone.

This is a collection started by my father roughly 35 years ago we haven't really bought or sold any in years. its not a huge collection but there is plenty of real nice images that I could stare at for hours.

That said:

If anyone sees a card that has personal meaning so much so that they can convince me to:
I may provide a high quality digital image file of your choosing.
I may part with it.


Your idea of a T-Shirt is a great idea however I don't own rights to the artwork and id hope that is respected by all.

this particular image is good quality no watermark (your welcome!)

Behind Barndoor Island, that's the clay point peninsular area that was home to Camp Alton from 1937-1992, 55-years of snipe hunting for the junior campers and a huge capture the flag, color war competition event for the senior campers, every first week in August.

Prior to 1937 it was a home for horses farm, or something?

Makes sense to me based on the long stretch of lake in the background, but that’s a long trek. Narrowing things down, could the vantage point could be from somewhere on Spindle Point looking out toward Pitchwood Island?

That looks possible! Did “The Mount” ever do a Sally’s Gut run?

Question Deltiology=The Study of Postcards...

Some things about this photo looked strange to me.

The mount is much brighter than its surroundings.

The black smoke has only just started, indicating the "pedal is to the metal". The smoke is streaming straight back, but there are no whitecaps. There's little splash at the wheel, and scarcely any wake.

Just where would it be steaming/starting from?

The surroundings are sharp, unlike American postcards of the 1950s and 1960s. No touchups are noted.

Color film was introduced to the public in 1942.

Quote:
Kodacolor: Kodak introduced color print film in 1942 but its slowness and high cost kept it out of the hands of many amateur photographers. This also prevented it from being used to create real color photo postcards as an identical look could be had with the much cheaper process printed photochrome card
So, maybe, the card is photochrome. Or maybe it is some other process--maybe European/German.

'Sure would like to see the other side of the card--and the postmark! (Please).

Created on my tiny Smartphone. This was "work".

That's it. Pitchwood is the island in the foreground; behind it to left is Stonedam. Governors is visible on right.
To see this on google, follow this link [https://goo.gl/maps/5bkCxyS6AT2sec6eA] to google maps. Select the "globe view". Then (from a computer) use CTRL and mouse to change the view angle.

Thanks for you interest.
Are postcards your thing or was this from google university?
In hand it certainly does not feel as if it is a photograph. Its some form of artwork that may have started with capturing an image with a lens. Kinda nice.

This "post card" is actually in a packet of images of the lake that you would mail just the same as a postcard. Quite nice.

Last Sunday I posted the back side one.
Maybe next week I will do something like a page with the description of the lake the area and a list of islands.

I do like the where is it cards?......

Looks to be a http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Han...of_photographs black and white photo that was hand couloured and then many copies get printed like that and hopefully sold.

I've never seen it happen- but maybe coming back from Alton Bay heading north- Sleepers Island the small one, and Rattlesnake behind it? The elevation of the island makes me think of Rattlesnake. Of course it's a painting, so I'm guessing it's not at scale?
