|The American "Colony" in the 1860s. Please help us obtain |
such pictures in high-resolution digitized form
On occasion, however, we have skipped certain collections because of requests for payment.
|Photograph of the colony founder, George|
Jones Adams, c. 1841
(Our research found that Mark Twain met some of the members of the failed colony and wrote about them.)
Unfortunately, the photographs can only be obtained in digitized high-resolution with payment. In one case, a small American museum contains documents and photographs, and images must be purchased. In the case of the Library of Congress, which has been amazingly cooperative in releasing their photographs, the photograph described below has never been digitized.
Title: The American Settlement, near Joppa, Palestine. Erected by the Adams Colony from Maine and New Hampshire, 1866-7
