About This Image
Bucolic landscape scene of man driving a horse with buckboard from a standing position down a country dirt road towards two rural homes. A huge oak tree dominates the left foreground of this pictorialist work. With photographer's information label on verso. Great pictorialist image.
Hermann C. Lythgoe was director of the food and drug division of the Massachusetts State Department of Public Health. He took photographs as a serious hobby and entered many of the salons of the 1920s-30s. His work is in the collection of the Photographic Society of America. Lythgoe also used photography in his public health position and apparently made photomicrographs. He wrote a number of articles on public health and these were often illustrated with photographs.
He lived in Newton, MA.
