A number of years back, the webmaster of the Cavalier Club website in the UK traveled to New Hampshire with his wife. While they were up in my neck of the woods, they came upon an old picture taken at one of the railroads up here of two men holding Cavaliers.
They felt pretty sure that the rail-house they saw the picture in was at one of the houses in Crawford Notch, which is on the backside of the mountain.
In looking at the picture that they emailed me, I felt pretty certain that the train was one out of our Conway Railway. The date is blurry in the picture, but it looks to be around the early 1900's. I have to say that is a mighty fine looking early Cavalier!
It was such a beautiful day here in the Valley that we offered to take the 40 minute drive up to Crawford Notch to see if that is where the pictures was and to find out a little more information on when the picture was taken and if there was any documentation regarding who these people might be.
Unfortunately when we got up there, the Rail-houses were shut for the winter. Of course the area was crazy busy with winter hikers, snowshoers, ice climbers and cross country skiers, but the little houses.....closed until Spring.
I have lived up here now for almost 20 years and still each time I see the mountain, especially this backside portion of it, it takes my breath away.
I did of course take some "car knitting" with me.................
I am test knitting Anne's Hoarfrost with a newly dyed color of Opulence. I thought I might have been able to finish it on the trip, but the combination of lace and driving made me a bit carsick, so Acer got a good workout instead. I am hoping to finish up with this stunning little neck warmer tomorrow. :)
