Today’s throwback Thursday photograph overlooks Groton, New York. This peaceful winter scene was taken by Verne Morton  in 1904.

Morton was born in Groton in 1868. He began taking pictures in the late 1890s, and specialized in documenting rural life. Today, the majority of Morton’s original negatives are preserved by the History Center in Tompkins County.
