Cyanotypes Photograph Album of Boston and Oregon, Pacific Northwest, South Pacific Coast Railroad. Oregon: No Publisher, [1890].

8” x 6” Carte-de-Visite Photograph Album. Dark champagne-colored cloth over hard boards; stiff backboards with 3 ” openings. Total of 49 photographs: 14 Cyanotypes, 35 black and white sepia toned photographs. The fourteen cyanotype photographs are of Boston and New England at the end of the 19th century; they include family groupings, landscapes and urban settings, including a photograph of a city street (likely Boston) which shows horse drawn street cars, and a sign (painted on the side of a tall building) reading: “Braham. Dow & Co.” which has been identified as a manufacturer and dealer of wrought iron steam and gas pipes in Boston at the end of the 19th century. The remaining thirty-five sepia toned photographs include scenes that appear to be taken in the Pacific Northwest, likely Oregon, during the same time period. These photographs include two which show a depot with a train car – clearly identified as the South Pacific Coast Railroad (which places the photograph in the Pacific Northwest at the turn of the century). These photographs also include whimsical groupings of children, young adults, and candid family photographs; including pictures of young women in straw hats and shirtwaists with their bicycles. Several photographs of a family hunting trip in the mountains depict a mother, her husband, and son in turn of the century hunting garb posing with rifles.

Price: $300.00
