    Taken sometime around 1893 - 1897, these are among my favorite "discoveries" in my grandfathers photos.

      The landscape dates from after October 1897 because the small dome on the right on the SE tower was not not put on yet for the October 1897 Dedication Exercises. The telescope photographs may well date from a early as 1897. I do not recall ever seeing those two and would love jpegs if you can spare them. Who was your grandfather? Thanks for sharing!
