Scope and content

This object is an enlarged sepia photo of the southern shoreline of Grand Manan Island, NB. The image shows a man standing on top of the 300+ foot cliff. From the angle of the photo, the photographer would have been half way down the cliff on the next peninsula. There is a beach at the bottom of the cliffs with the edge of the water being foamy from crashing on the rocks. Printed in the bottom left corner of the photo is "Copyrighted 1889, H.G. Peabody, Boston".
