SNAP-1313. HOLDING HANDS. This snap measures 4 x 5. The image is in good condition. $18
T-1033. RELAXING. This pair of tintypes is in good condition. Each image has some light marks. $95
A-159. GRANNY, DAUGHTER, DOG. This quarter plate ambro has some minor spots and needs a bit of a touch up of the black backing. I put new glass on it. The case is a bit rough, but it was at one time a nice pushbutton. Now the spine is apart and it needs some glue. $125
CDV-1036. FARM SCENE. I'm not really sure what the focus was here - that rickety wagon? The CDV is not identified other than a name on the back, Ingalls. The image is in good condition. It's an interesting crew, including kids and men. $135
SNAP-1307. BOSTON HARBOR. This cyanotype shows Boston Harbor around 1900. The photo measures 4 x 5 and it is in good condition. $85
OP-1310. WINTER 1906. This is a lovely portrait. The image measures 3.75 x 4.5. It is mounted to a light board that measures 9.25 x 11.25. The photo is in nice condition and the mount has a few issues at the right edge. The mount is signed EHR '06 at the lower right corner (not visible in the scan). On the back, there is a caption that reads, "Taken by Edmund H. Royce of St. Albans, VT on a visit to me in Phila - winter of 1906." $55
CC-966. OUTDOOR PORTRAIT. This cabinet card pictures Lurie Congdon. There is no photographer ID. The image has some light marks and and foxing on the mount. $22
SNAP-1311. SUMMER DAY. This snap measures 4 x 5. The photo is in good condition. $15
RPPC-1062. POLITICAL FLOAT. It seems that there are masked "Presidents" in the car. I see hats that say "Taft" and "Wilson" and another guy looks like Teddy Roosevelt. The front of the car has a sign that says, "The Consumer" and "Third Term Platform." There is what looks like a skull on the front as well. The card is in good condition with some light marks and a bend at the lower left corner. $135
OP-1309. MILK GLASS PORTRAIT. This sixth plate image comes in a half case. The photo is in good condition although it isn't tack-sharp. The tree and tablecloth are lightly tinted. $135
SNAP-1308. IN THE BRIGHT SUN. This snap measures nearly 3.5 x 4.5. The photo is in good condition with some light marks. $30
CC-967. HAPPY KIDS. This cabinet card is by W.H.F. Heath of Bradford, OH. The photo is in good condition with some light marks. $35
T-1035. HAPPY FRIENDS. These gals look like they had a great day. This tintype comes in a worn paper folder that measures 4.25 x 6.25. The photographer's info is not readable. The tin has some light marks. $75
OP-1311. NAVY FRIENDS. Each of these photobooth images is in good condition with some light marks. $18
SNAP-1312. PETERSBURG BASEBALL PLAYERS. This snap measures 4 x 5. The paper is glossy so there are some light marks. I'm not sure where this particular Petersburg was. $40
CDV-1037. DESK IN THE STUDIO. This CDV has no identification but I wonder if this guy was the manager? Why else would all his stuff be there? The photo has some light marks and soiling as well as some fade. $75
SNAP-1309. HIGH KICK. I love this snap, from her checked top to the motion and shadow. The snap measures 2.25 x 3.25 and is in good condition. $45
OP-1312. WASHINGTON SQUARE ARCH. You'll note that there is a camera on a tripod in the midst of the group of men. I like the woman selling (collecting?) wood. The photo measures 5.25 x 4.25. It has light marks and some fade. $55
SNAP-1314. STACKED UP. This image measures 4 x 5 and is in good condition. The photo has some light marks visible at an angle at the center. $28
T-1034. MOTHER AND MOVING KIDS. This tintype comes in a worn paper folder that measures 4.25 x 6.25. The image is in nice condition. I like the soft focus and the light in the background. $65
SNAP-1310. TINY DANCER. This gal is made up to within an inch of her life. She's got the pose down though. The back tells us that she was "Cherry - on the day she danced at the Fish Fry in Costa Mesa." The image measures 3.5 x 5.75. The image is in good condition with some light marks visible at an angle. $32
CC-965. FRANZ AND LUDWIG RANK. It was September 1897 and I love this image of two brothers having a grand time. The cabinet card is in nice condition. The black mark between them is a negative flaw. $250
