Questions for Photos 1 & 2

1. How would you describe each of the cabins? What are some of the similarities and differences between them?

2. Why do these buildings blend harmoniously with the landscape? Would the appearance of the camp be changed if sawn lumber had been used exclusively?

3. The Baltimore League for Crippled Children was the first group to use Camp Misty Mount. Do you think these buildings would be considered accessible for the disabled by today's standards? What, if any, alterations do you think would have to be made to accommodate the mobility-impaired?

* The photos on this screen have a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a high quality version of Photo 1 and Photo 2, but be aware that each file will take as much as 30 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
