Horseshoe Curve from the Valley
From the valley floor, Artist George Hetzel circa 1876 painted this landscape looking west at the Horseshoe Curve. This painting is in the collection of the Sarah Mellon Scaife Art Museum at Pittsburgh, PA .
This 1893 photograph was made from a similar perspective as that of landscape artist George Hetzel around 1876. The photographer is on the breast of the reservoir dam that had been built since 1876. The photographer is looking west. From "Art work of Blair County," W. H. Parish Publishing Company, Chicago, 1893.
