    I have a print by e.masters titled “the old homestead” dated 1901 about 12″ x 18″ and copyright by louis wolffe in the office of the librarian at congress washington – any information on this – I’d be interested.

  2. Roland Goodbody Says:

    I can’t tell whether your “Old Homestead” bears any relation (other than its title) to the play that is referenced in our New Hampshire Writers Photographs collection. The play was written by Denman Thompson and George Ryer and it opened in Boston in 1886 and played on Broadway in 1904 and again in 1907 (see http://www.oldhomesteadswanzey.com/). My guess is that your print is unrelated. Sorry I can’t be of more help than this.
