Black and white photograph of roan mare, Eula H. with Wendell Wathen, age 19, near the sheds of the Cumberland County Fair Trotting Park during the Western Maine Agricultural Exposition, Gorham, Maine, August 1932.
A pacer, Eula H. was bred out of the stables of A. F. Curtis in Illinois. Her recorded birth year is 1924. The mare was then sold to W. H. Keyes of St. Stephens, N.B., Canada.
In 1932, she became the first horse acquired by Stanley A. Wathen of Fort Fairfield who, along with his son Wendell, trained and bred a number of Maine's top pacers and trotters.
The photograph is signed by Guy Kendall in India ink in the lower-right corner.
