Bird's Eye View of Waynesville, N.C. / View of Plott's Balsam


Early postcards illustrated life and scenery in western North Carolina. This “Bird’s Eye View of Waynesville” was made from an original photograph by Herbert W. Pelton (1879-1961). Pelton was active as a photographer in Asheville in the 1910s, 1920s, and 1930s. He produced landscapes of the region including panoramic shots, a rather rare format at the time. He partnered with photographer George Masa to operate their Photo-Craft Shop in the 1920s but, within a decade, moved to Washington, D.C
