Fayette County PA:  A sunlit pool near Bear Run River - 1915.  The Stewart family often took weekend trips to Fayette County's Bear Run.  Bear Run is a nature reserve today and is near Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater.  To give family and friends a better feel for the adventure, he hand-color black and white negatives into full-color 3x4 lantern slides.  The Process:  He contacted a negative with another negative to create a positive slide.  He then selected a fine brush and colors and meticulously created full color slides.
