Scope and Content Note:

This group of photographs, taken between the years 1899 and 1913, documents bridges, dams, gauging stations, hydro-power plants, and other hydraulic structures found on waterways throughout New York State. This includes lakes, rivers, streams, reservoirs, and canals, many of which are part of the Hudson-Mohawk River watershed. Several of these photographs show sites along the Esopus Creek in Ulster County, which at the time were being considered for the proposed New York City water supply reservoir. Sites depicted in these photographs are found in the following counties:  Albany, Broome, Clinton, Dutchess, Essex/Franklin, Fulton, Greene, Hamilton, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Livingston, Madison, Montgomery, Nassau, Niagara, Oneida, Orange, Orleans, Oswego, Otsego, Putnam, Rensselaer, Rockland, Saint Lawrence, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Tompkins, Ulster, Warren, Washington, and Westchester. There are also six unidentified photographs; nine photographs that depict waterways from out-of-state (Connecticut, New Jersey and Michigan), and eleven photos of abandoned waterwheels (Items 233-243).

The majority of the images are approximately 5 x 7 inches (13 x 18 cm) but there are a number which are smaller and larger. Each image, with the exception of two of the unidentified photographs, has been labeled on the verso in pencil, or typewritten, as to its location and the date. The photographs are arranged alphabetically by county. Some of the photos are labeled with the letters R.E.H. (possibly Robert E. Horton, whose name is on Photograph 33) and J.P.N., possibly the initials of the photographer. (See the Robert E. Horton Papers, SC16672.)

Of particular note are Photograph 114, labeled “Hop field on Wilson farm, Cherry Valley, N.Y., July 26, 1913,” showing a man, woman, boy and girl standing next to a man (?) sitting in a sulky-style piece of equipment hitched to a horse wearing a feedbag, and Photograph 147, labeled “Hoffman’s Ferry, slope gaging [i.e., gauging]  station, 1901,” showing two men standing on the ferry next to two horses hitched to a four-wheeled wagon that appears to be carrying milk cans; a rowboat is tied to the ferry.

Biographical Note:

Robert Elmer Horton (1875-1945) was a hydraulic engineer and hydrologist, who was employed for much of his professional career as New York District Engineer of the U.S. Geological Survey. In this position he conducted numerous studies from which he could establish a quantitative basis for the analysis of the drainage of networks of streams. The empirical rules he discovered and set forth are generally referred to as Horton’s laws.
