Mystery River Picture

January 1, 1902

I found these two old pictures in amongst all the other stuff. No idea where or when this was taking. Probably some time in the early 20th century. Could be Western New York, North Central Pennsylvania, or Germany. I am voting for Germany.

Based on the letters I have found, Joanna Stouffer Wilkinson did a lot of genealogy research. So this could have been a picture someone sent her of where the Pershing, Stouffer, or Orner family are from. But this is just a wild guess.

Note: the wider shot image was a negative printed on a photo paper. Probably shot with a large or medium format camera.
