Both Boston and Berkeley thought of themselves as a kind of new “Athens”. Here, Annie is showing Pan in the Hills of Berkeley. In the December 1908 issue of Camera Craft Annie reviewed the photographs in the Arts and Crafts Exhibition at Idora Park, Oakland. She showed pictures by Laura Adams Armer, Emily Pitchford, Adelaide Hanscom, and herself. She also reviewed numerous other photographers. Annie picked this image to show her work in the review.
