“The Telescope”

“Snapshot Saturday”

An 18th-century traditional woodsman looking through a brass telescope.

While sitting in camp, a British hunter from Fort Detroit reached for his haversack, pulled out a brass telescope and looked to a far hill. “I thought I saw something over there,” Fred Tonks said as he compressed the wilderness treasure. A half-day’s journey west of Fort Detroit, 1763.
