Hi Jonathan, Thanks so much for your reply. For the benefit of other readers following this blog I am adding a link to "The Prelude."

I agree that chances are the unknown photographer may by well have been "channeling" the poem when the photo was taken. The big mystery remaining is the identity of the maker. The print has the distinct "cool" quality of a developing out salt print rather than the warmth of a straight p.o.p. salt print. Perhaps it was taken and/or printed by Thomas Sutton?

BTW... It occurred to me that the 19th century photographer would have to have taken the image on terra firma, so I have written to the gent who took the contemporary photograph to ask him for any info that might help confirm that the two photos are of the same location. Stay tuned!Hi Jonathan, Thanks so much for your reply. For the benefit of other readers following this blog I am adding a link to "The Prelude."

Hi Jonathan, I left a reply re: the boat house on my blog, but am not sure if you saw it. After viewing a few other photos of similar structures I realized the Keswick Boat House just didn't quite match. I think I may have come up with something very similar and include herewith a link for you to see. Scroll down to find the photo and tell me what you think.
