This illustration is part of an article about the various things to do on Mount Desert Island in the late 19th century.
Climbing the mountains in what is now Acadia National Park was a favorite activity for rusticators. Their choice of clothing for this activity, at least for the women, is quite different from what hikers wear today in 2013.
The original drawing was by Charles S. Reinhart and the Engraving was made for Harper’s New Monthly Magazine, Vol. 73, No. 435, August 1886, pg. 419.
