Scope and Content: The B. P. Atkinson Photograph Collection is made up of mainly scenic photographs taken by Bert P. Atkinson of Tilton and Laconia, NH, to be used as postcards, on stationary, and other similar functions, and is dated 1912-1942, with a number of the images undated. Many of the photos have been touched up with these goals in mind, having had telephone poles and wires, dead tree branches, and fog spots removed. Some of the photographs have had color added. Many of the touched-up photographs have typed notes attached to the back detailing the edits. The collection consists mainly of photographs taken in the spring and summer, with a few winter scenes and skiers. The collection contains photographs from all over New Hampshire, though largely from the metropolitan, lakes, and White Mountain regions. The negatives comprise a more extensive view of the state and include some shots of other states in New England and Florida. An index of the negatives is in the finding aid folder in the reading room.
