Printed in sepia platinum and shown in it’s original wood frame, this fine landscape by Brooklyn Camera Club president William T. Knox dates to 1905 or slightly before. It shows a bucolic country scene, perhaps taken in the early morning hours, framed by a split-rail wood fence at left and bisected in the middle by a rutted dirt path. Another fence can be seen in background at right along with hills on the horizon and a farm building at right. A biography of William T. Knox along with a portrait of the photographer by Charles F. Clarke can be found here.
