Nantucket 4x5 glass negatives ca. 1895 8 different scenes

Hartford: Alderman Drug Co., 1895. First Edition. Original wraps. here are 8 glass plate negatives, each 4" x 5" with 7 in paper envelopes. Envelopes have pencil notes identifying the subject on Nantucket as : Hussey St Pump and Cottage, Old Coffin House, Nantucket Street, Nantucket Harbor from Church Tower, Sankaty Light, Old Mill, Jethro Coffin House Sunset Hill and one envelope missing and no subject. The group are held together in another envelop fro Alderman Drug Company of Hartford Ct.- this envelop appears to be intended for ordering photographs and lists them as Kodak Agents. Alderman was in business 1913- 1944. Their envelope, in this case, was propbably used just to hold the negatives together, but they may have made prints as well. The negatives have no date or maker shown- 1895 is just a guess. The negatives appear to be in very good condition with no obvious scratches or other damage, except, perhaps around the edges. Note: due to size and weight, and fragility, these will be sent by priority mail. Very good. Item #7931

Price: $450.00
