Souvenir calender, Ye Old Bath Town, 1705-1905
In 1904, Lida T. Rodman of Washington, North Carolina, decided to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the founding of Bath by publishing a 1905 calendar. Several of the calendar's pictures were of historic Bath -- including St. Thomas Church, the view of Bath Creek from the Bonner house, the famous chimney on the Palmer-Marsh house, and a portrait of Christopher Gale. However, many of the other pictures depicted other aspects of eastern North Carolina history and progress. Interestingly, none of the pictures of progress featured Bath but were, instead, focused on Washington, the town that had eclipsed Bath as the county's center of commerce in the late eighteenth century.
