This is one of the oldest photographs of the farm. The view does not extend far enough to the west (the far left of the photo) to be certain that the Witness is not there. However, it was also not visible in the 1866 Henry Richard S. Bunnett painting of the farmhouse, which would seem to confirm the absence of any trees.
