Boyhood Home of John W. Gunnison
Elmer Nelson - 1897 ca.
The house where John Gunnison grew up, on a Sullivan Co. New Hampshire farm, is a Federal Style farm house with a hipped roof and an entry at the center. A large Balm of Giliead tree (balsam poplar) stands at the left. A horse hitched to a buggy stands in front of the barn that appears to be attached to the house. An unidentified barefoot boy, wearing knee length pants and a loose shirt, stands near Ernest Nelson who wears trousers with a jacket over his shirt, and long stockings with high-top shoes. Arthur Nelson, at the right is dressed casually in high boots and a loose jacket.

Title by contributor. At the time of this photo, Hial and Ida Nelson lived in the house with their four sons. The people on the lawn, from left to right are, 1) unidentified, 2) Ernest Nelson, 3) Arthur Nelson. At this time Elmer and Arthur Nelson were in their late teens and wanted to become professional photographers, so they were shooting a lot of photos in the Goshen, NH area.
