Vintage New Hampshire Maple Sugaring Photographs in Book C1900 - image 1 of 11

I am delighted to offer you this Vintage New Hampshire Maple Sugaring Photographs in Book. What a treasure to have found! The two sugaring pictures that particularly charm me are one of a Sap House while boiling. It was taken from the outside. You see the steam rising and the wood that has been stacked to keep the fires burning under the pots of sap. The other picture is an oxen team pulling a sled with several empty, sap buckets. The large wooden barrel would be filled then taken to the sugar house. It was emptied there using a spigot on the bottom of the barrel. On either side of the sled are to young men. One of the children is about 10 years old. This method of collection involved sled and oxen, the buckets and many trips into the woods and back to the sap house. Sugaring is now done with the help of 4 Wheeler's or plastic tubing from the woods straight to the sugar house to be boiled.

There are several photos of large farms, barns and animals. They are not all strictly sugaring pictures. I presume the Farmhouses are the owners of the sap houses. There is a picture of someone’s prized BIG white Rooster. He must have been quite a bird to be honored with his own photograph!

There are several city street scenes as well. There are street cars, horse drawn carriages and a number of people on the streets. Given the clothing I date these C1900. My guess would be that these pictures were taken in Boston.

Dimensions:6 ½” X 5”

Condition: The book is not complete. There are as many empty pages as ones with photos. However what is here is quite wonderful!
