Stereo Viewcard of Smith Monument

A rare Davis Bros photo of the Smith Memorial on Star Island. Click on slide show below to see close-ups. This shot was taken before the pedestal washed away in a storm in the 1890s. This may be the only photo showing one of the "Turk's head" carvings at the top of the monument. (Courtesy ISHRA Shoals Collection at Portsmouth Athenaeum)
