An illustration from Thomas Sedgwick Steele's 1880 edition of Canoe and Camera. The text notes, "I had chosen for my route this year, the East Branch of the Penobscot River, a canoe paddle of almost two hundred miles, as offering in its swift running streams, lovely waterfalls, and majestic mountains, that excitement and adventure which my love of nature craved. In addition to the writer, the party was divided as follows: "Quartermaster," photographic artist, and three guides, named respectively Bowley, Weller, and Morris" (p. 32).
