(Pers. comm. Dana Gee, Photograph Digitization Project Cataloger, Special Collections, Haverhill Public Library, 7 July 2018) "Walter R. Merryman, a local photographer, may have made the Millvale Dam image, this negative was with a group of his negatives but not marked with his name. In October 1905 he made a panorama series of 8x10 glass negatives from the top of Tilton's Tower on Silver Hill; the tower was torn down in 1945."
