Pictorial History of Sonnenberg Collection

The images in this collection depict Sonnenberg, the summer residence of Frederick Ferris Thompson and Mary Clark Thompson in Canandaigua, New York. Compiled in Mary Clark Thompson's 1907 scrapbook, the photographs capture Sonnenberg's gardens, walkways, ponds, and architecture. At the time Nathan R. Graves and John Dick took these photographs, the historic property was at the height of its grandeur. Mary Clark Thompson continued to renovate and maintain the gardens as tribute to her late husband until her death in 1923.
