The Mohawk Trail became a popular tourist destination for motorists seeking out scenic drives. Postcards of this famous route advertised not only the panoramic views accessible at various points along its length, but also bucolic woodland scenes such as these "Beautiful Curves." Scenes like this appealed to Americans wishing to reestablish a connection to nature they believed they had lost through urbanization and industrialization.
