Photographs from City Point in the Alice Mason Collection, Boston Athenaeum
Four Photographs by John Reekie, medical supply boat "Planter"
A succession of four photographs depicting the "Planter" by John Reekie. Identifiable by the one negative that Gardner included in his sketchbook and attributed. The images seem to have been taken about half an hour apart (camera movement and shadows). Other captions label this the Hospital Wharf, which makes sense. These four images capture a sense of the shipping activity at City Point.
