Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
I returned to my one local antique store this week and traded some images I had for scores of English stereoviews. One is easy to identify in terms of place as its written on the back in copperplate "Royal York Crescent, Clifton. Bristol." I wonder if this view attached could be by William Harvey Barton, who was active in the 1860s.
The other view I attached is of a group of women and children with cows. It was in a box of cards marked USA but there is no evidence at all on the card to indicate that it is in fact North American or English.
Any ideas pleas?.
Mysteries also are a couple on yellow card stock with mauve backs and white label "The Thames. Nos. 44,60,63" No idea who the photographer may have been.. the labels remind me of George Washington Wilson..
