Greater Miami River Valley - Photographs by Noah Elwood Weaver

I inherited the photographer albums of my paternal grandfather, Noah Elwood Weaver (1885-1973) who made many images from the late 1890's, throughout the first half of the 20th Century.   Here he captures a canoeist on the Great Miami River at West Carrollton Ohio where he lived all of his married life, 1909 - 1973,
