Summary
The story of Amos F. Clough, a pioneering photographer of the White Mountains, has rested in obscurity for a century and a half. Born and raised before the Civil War in the rural New Hampshire town of Warren, Clough began his career in photography early in the 1860s, seeking out what he called 'gems' from the natural world. Using a special camera with two lenses side-by-side, he took stereoscopic photographs. The most spectacular of them came from the winters he spent atop Mount Moosilauke in 1870 and Mount Washington in 1871. Includes Clough's complete diary entitled "Journal of events &c Whilst on the Mountain," from his expedition to Mount Washington in the winter of 1871
