Found in an old farm house in Adams County Wis.. Looks like possibly a location shot of the nearby Wisconsin Dells. An original early H.H Bennett studio item ? Anyone familiar with this waterfall scene ? The tell may be the very few names on the canyon wall of "2 Initials plus Howell and 3 initials plus Muhr July 1875" Looks like the picture has never been out of the original quarter sawn oak frame. Has fragments of old dark brown paper back seal where information was likely notated. Excellent quality sepia tint photograph. My guess on the date would be the teens or 20s, maybe even earlier.

    No, that's the writing on the canyon wall by the names.
