Dream Falls - Tahquamenon Falls State Park
Upper Tahquamenon Falls in Fall Color. Tahquamenon Falls State Park encompasses close to 50, 000 acres stretching over 13 miles. Most of this is undeveloped woodland without roads, buildings or power lines. The centerpiece of the park, and the very reason for its existence, is the Tahquamenon River with its waterfalls. The Upper Falls is one the largest waterfalls east of the Mississippi. It has a drop of nearly 50 feet and is more than 200 feet across. A maximum flow of more than 50, 000 gallons of water per second has been recorded cascading over these falls. Four miles downstream is the Lower Falls, a series of five smaller falls cascading around an island.

Dejatch Alamayou, King Theodores Son, July 1868
Dejatch Alamayou, King Theodore's Son, July 1868. The young orphaned prince cradles a little white doll and stares sadly into space. Dejatch Alamayou was taken to England after the British defeat of the Ethiopians at the battle of Magdala and the suicide of his father, Tewodros (Theodore) II, emperor of Ethiopia, in April 1868. Queen Victoria took an interest in Alamayou and saw to his education and protection, placing him in the care of Captain Tristram Speedy, who, like Cameron, had a home on the Isle of Wight. Speedy brought the child to Cameron's house shortly after his arrival in England.
