Fort Montgomery
Rouses Point, New York

The Charles Barney
Image Collection
Part II

It is obvious that Charles Barney, Sr. had rather remarkable access to Fort Montgomery, before and after its unfortunate demolition. He took many photos of the fort and was photographed, together with his wife Rita and friends, on the fort grounds.

In Part II we share more of Charles Barney's photographs of Fort Montgomery.
