New Photo of Passumpsic Mill

A summer or two ago, I purchased several 5×4″ glass dry plate negatives from a dealer. He had approximately 200 slides, but I only purchased several showing the aftermath of the 1904 fire–basically I purchased pictures of something that was no longer there. It was difficult to examine the plates without a light box, but I also selected one that I thought showed the valley and might show the mill. Now that I’ve scanned it, I’ve discovered that it’s an excellent image of the mill from a different angle. I don’t know the exact date of the photo, but I believe it was taken around 1900. Curiously, the mill does not appear to have its two-tone paint job.
