"Scene on Bras d'Or lakes from mountain, Beinn Bhreagh"


"Benn Bhreagh, the home of Graham Bell, founder of the telephone and everlasting benefactor of mankind. The white triangle in the foreground is the base of a structure used by him in his experiments. This picture is taken from the spot where Mr. Bell was wont to watch the setting sun sinking into the waters of the Bras d'Or. Here also, when their day of life was ended, Mr. and Mrs. Bell were laid to rest."
