Description

"Uncle Tristam," as identified by the photographer Chansonetta Stanley Emmons, may be Tristam Norton (1811-1908) from Kingfield. Emmons was born in Kingfield in 1858. She learned photography from her brothers F.O. and F.E. Stanley, who patented a successful dry-plate photography system.

Chansonetta became well-known photographer in her own right, often capturing nostalgic rural life as technology changed agriculture in the early 20th century. She and her daughter Dorothy hand colored lantern slides for presentations. This image survives in Emmons collection as a glass negative and a hand-colored lantern slide.
