6 Landscapes & Buildings Photos

Half plate ambrotype photo of a farm in autumn, with small hayricks in the fields. The image is backed by a trimmed cabinet card photo of a young man, and is in a leather case with red velvet matte.

Quarter plate ambrotype of a small town with salt-box architecture houses and barns. There is a small wooded knoll in the background. The image is in an embossed leatherette case with a separated hinge.

Quarter plate ambrotype of a town scene, with a three story building in center, a building under construction next door. There is a wagon and many barrels in front, and it appears that an auction is taking place. The image is in half of an embossed leatherette case. 

Half plate tintype of a farmhouse with two children standing at the door. It is in a paper matte and says, “Molly Harrison Estate Gold Hill, Oregon,” on the back.

A second half plate tintype of the same house with different paint, with two women and two children outside.

A gutta percha framed half plate ambrotype of Niagara Falls, with a couple seated on a bench in front. There is a break through the plate on the left side. The frame has two small breaks in it, one a missing corner, the other a small wedge missing at the top. Despite the damage, it is still a very clear image.

Dimensions: The half plate images are 4 ¼ by 6 ½ inches. The quarter plate images are 3 1/8 by 4 1/8. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $30.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

 

Condition:

The last image is cracked and in a damaged frame. The other images are all very good, but being outdoor images, and somewhat dark. The pair of images from Oregon is remarkable for showing the same building over time.
