Harpers Ferry, 1865

Published:May 13, 2009 by Brendan Wolfe


After a few posts about John Brown, it seems only right to post this gorgeous photo of Harpers Ferry from 1865. The print is in the Library of Congress, but we’ve taken this digital version from the excellent historical photo blog Shorpy, where you might enjoy readers’ observations on the bridge as well as modern shots of that white building on the left.

Here’s another view from the same photographer.
