Description

Just about fifty years ago we began to appreciate our folk artists. We are now beginning to discover our folk photographers. Upstate New York's Verne Morton (1868-1945) of Groton (twelve miles northeast of Ithaca) is one of these previously unsung amateur craftsmen whose work proclaims its own quality." - Louis C. Jones, from the foreword. These 246 photographs chosen from the Verne Morton Collection of more than 10,000 glass plate and film negatives, capture in fine detail rural and small-town life during the first forty years of the twentieth century.
