"The Artistic Series, No.61,
The Country Seat of Wm. P. Letchworth-the Horse Shoe Fall and
Portage Bridge in the distance, Portage, N.Y.
E & H.T. Anthony & Co.
New York, NY
is the classic view of Mr. Letchworth's Glen Iris Estate. The
image was probably taken in the late 1860's from what would become
the Council Grounds. You can see the Glen Iris with its manmade
"lake", fountain, and winding pathways. In the background
is the Portage wooden Bridge. You can also trace the cut of the
Genesee Valley Canal on the hillside across the river. Look closely
at just below the tree line.
