The photographs in this collection were provided by Ruth Powell of Mountain Dale.
The collection includes many images taken by her father. These are interesting because they are not the typical postcard views we see so often. Mr. Rice was a photographer and his work has provided us with an astonishing collection of images.
The subject matter includes a varied assortment of places including Thurmont, Lewistown, Catoctin Frunace, Mountain Dale, Frederick, Braddock Heights and others. There are many photos of individuals and groups as well as long gone local businesses, churches, homes and landmarks.
My thanks to Mrs. Powell for making this collection available for display.
As of September 22, 2010 there are 262 images in this collection, more will be added in the coming week. Be sure to check back often!
