Louis E. Jones, Woodstock, NY Photographer – New Photographs

June 17, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

In April of this year, I was able to attend the spring post card show hosted by the Kaaterskill Postcard Club at the village of Saugerties, New York. There was a good number of postcard dealers, and the attendance looked pretty good as well. When I arrived, to my surprise, the parking lot was full, and I was forced to park on the grass along the side of the lot. This was the first show held by the club in three years, and it was the first one in Saugerties, as the show had previously been held in Kingston.

 

While browsing the impressive collections of the various dealers I was able to pick up some new postcards for the website, including some by photographers John W. Rusk, Samuel E. Rusk, Conrad O. Bickelmann, Charles H. Phelps and B. E. Pudney.

 

I was also able to pick up 14 new postcards by Louis E. Jones, the well-regarded photographer and painter closely associated with the village of Woodstock in the Catskill Mountains and, later in his career, with the Great Smoky Mountains near Gatlinburg, Tennessee. All the new images have been added to the Jones gallery, which now contains 41 of his original postcard photographs. To view all the postcards, navigate to Gallery >> Historic Catskills Photographers >> Louis E. Jones.
