The following editorial comment regarding this plate appears on p. 162:



We have much pleasure in being able, this week, to present to our readers as a frontispiece an excellent photograph of the “Wasp,” by the well-known worker Mr. H. A. Latimer. This superb yacht picture, exhibited at the recent Boston Camera Club exhibition, attracted great attention. The picture we reproduce is almost perfect, both technically and artistically. The subject is one of extreme difficulty as everyone knows who has tried this kind of work.

Horace A. Latimer (1860-1931) was a member of The Boston Camera Club and non-resident of the Camera Club of New York who specialized in yachting photography among other pictorial subject
