Thomas P. Noe, [Scenes from Pilgrimage To Old Fort Raleigh On Roanoke Island], Pilgrimage to Old Fort Raleigh on Roanoke Island, North Carolina, 1908

In 1908 Episcopalians around North Carolina organized a pilgrimage to the site of historic Fort Raleigh, the site of the first English colony in North America. Photographs and sketches from the trip—the same year the Wrights returned to Kitty Hawk for more trials—illustrate scenes and popular dress from the period. Pilgrims came by boat—the only way to get to Roanoke Island or Kitty Hawk—but still in the fanciest dress of the day in this photograph of the landing at Manteo.
