Information request - 2: Unidentified Photographer

12201019890?profile=originalThis photograph has been consigned to the November 13th Photographs sale at Heritage Auctions but I can't get a positive ID on the photographer.  Possibly O. G. Rejlander?  Any leads would be appreciated.

Portrait of a Young Girl, English, circa 1860, albumen print, 161 x 133mm. Sheet size 460 x 328mm.

  • Nigel, I think that your guess that the photographer may be O.G. Rejlander  is right on the money.

    Notice the similarity in both hair and left hand placement to this Rejlander Photo from 1860, via the George Eastman House:

    Good luck!

    Best, David
