Mearns, Edgar Alexander, 1856-1916

Abstract

18 photographs, two of which are post cards, depicting Filippino scenery, vegetation, birds, dwellings, and people. Most photographs are labeled. Photographer is unknown, but some may have been taken by Mearns. Localities depicted include River cannons, Nanucan River, Argus River Falls, and Benguet. Post cards are marked 1906, but other images are undated. Images were possibly taken between 1902 and 1907, the years Mearns was in the Philippines.
