My three latest acquisitions. I’ve mentioned/showed the gentleman in the book-form case before, but I have a better photo of the image itself to include now. The little milk-glass ambrotype is truly exquisite. These are in a way consolation prizes for the one that got away – I was bidding on but got outgunned on a vintage 16×21 William Henry Jackson albumen print of Bridalveil falls at Yosemite, from the days of his Denver studio (1880-1897). That was a shame; at the closing bell I could have bought it but then I’d have had to turn around and re-sell it immediately, which would have been no fun. These I get to keep as long as I like.
