Photo & Painting Pairs

John Wellington was also an avid photographer, taking hundreds of pictures in Cumberland and the surrounding countryside. He once went on an extended trip on the C&O canal with his son George taking pictures of the people, boats and capturing life on the canal.


Some of the photographs he took are posted on this site, and in this section I have grouped together photos and paintings of the same scene. In some cases there are multiple versions of the same scene, sometimes in the same medium and sometimes a different medium.
