|Ownership and History||This photograph is reproduced in the 1976 book "Alice's World," by Ann Novotny, attributed to Alice Austen. However, it was re-attributed in the 1980s to Isaac Almstaedt after being discovered in an article in the November 1887 issue of "Outing" magazine. The article noted that all of the illustrations were based on a set of photos by Mr. Almstaedt.|
