This striking image of a large snake coiled on a newspaper was also taken in Interlachen, Florida. The newspaper, however, is Rockland’s Courier Gazette (still in print) from sometime in March of 1898. Crie took photographs of things she found to be interesting or unusual and the heavily patterned snake provides a marked contrast with the black and white newsprint.
