Gelatin print, #498 'Drifting Down.' Shows snow scene in Mystic CT; looking east to Godfrey Street from Edgecomb Street; signed in pencil lower right "Geo. E. Tingley." Handwritten by Tingley on reverse "#498 Drifting Down/ To Cliff and Ruby and little Louise Hampton/ tho the year is old and drear and cold,/ Yet my heart is warm with cheer,/ For friends of old- friends of gold - / And the thoughts of yester-year./ The Tingle-lillies." Probably refers to Clifford, Ruby, and Louise Watrous.
