Object Name Collage
Description Collage of two sepia-toned photographic prints of the Belle Isle Cedar Mount, mounted on beige cardboard, used as a reference by the Peninsular Engraving Company. The top image is rectangular, and show's the mount's waterfall as viewed from across a neighboring pond. The lower image is oval-shaped, overlaps the top image, and shows the tunnel through the base of the mount. Park-goers are in and around the pavilion at the peak of the mount in both images. Small "Please" signs are posted around the landscaped lawn of the mount in the lower image. "White line between pictures," is handwritten in the margin near where the photos overlap. A stamp from the Peninsular Engraving Company is on the verso:
