Item - 1

Album of 16 double-pages containing Valentines, Die-cuts, matchbook covers, 2 paper airplanes, photos, post cards premiums, advertising and more. All well preserved and in very good condition.

Item - 2

It would appear that the historian tried to keep his gathered photos in a 'surname or by-location' cohesiveness. These photos were found together and may be (A) related to one another in some way (B) gleaned from the same source (ie an auction or a donation) or (C) may have not yet been sorted in anyway).

100 pages of a B&W snapshot album along with photos and glass negatives an entire generation older. Seems to be alot words written on these photos with names and locations. 

Item - 3

Group of vintage cameras including a Voigtlander bellows camera.

It makes sense that an Estate with boxes loads of photos would contain arm loads of old cameras.

This lot contains some fabulous pages! 

Item - 12

Item - 13

AUCTIONEERS METHOD: I lay-out a layer of photos fitting my camera screen, shoot it,  then I place another layer on top and shoot that attempting to expose nearly every item being offered in that lot. That is the method I have chosen to 'de-construct' a 'flat or box' full of items. Often I will include an overview photo of the containerized lot. 

This lot contains portraits, snapshots, cabinet  cards, a tintype and photos that appear to be contact prints off of a glass negative. These are all old photos on paper of the period. Including a notable small photo advertising Anthony barbed wire fencing, a school bus and a mechanic in his shop. 


Item - 14

A cigar box and and a narrow-long box of correspondances and postage stamps. The Naval Sailor was writing back home to his family in Cincinatti Ohio.

Item - 21

This lot includes various catalogs depicting the state-of-the-art illustrations and printing-processes used over the evolution of the printed page.

Mail order marketing and in-home sales were tremendous tools to not only supply items you need but to expose the consumer to things they never knew existed. For many rural folks, an illustration of an electric toaster was the first toaster they had ever seen! 

The Sears catalog is very rough! Interestingly the bicycle pages were the only color lithographs inserted to the book. Can you imagine the sales spike to those bikes! Sears Roebuck was creating life-long consumers that would eagerly anticipate the next catalog! 

The world map, circus program and 'spoon-card' are all in this lot. 

Item - 22

Boxes of photo slides presentations, home photos slides, slide viewer and a gray-scale photographic indicator. This will be a particularly interesting lot to look thru. 

Item - 23

Item - 24

Item - 25

Collection of colorful vintage needle cases from the 40's and 50's. Some are printed on both sides. All have contents. 

Item - 26

57 glass negatives..

Glass negatives are a treasured piece of photography history. Emulsified glass plates were eeasilypurchased and used by a wider variety of photographers and offered a sharpness to the image unlike any photographic advancement before it. 

Glass plate photography finally permitted pictures to be taken on the fly. Whimsical snapshots could be made anywhere! At granmas house for the holiday, to record collegiate activites or to simply photograph a pet.. 

With a photographers (hobbiest) newly discovered freedom, the subjects of glass negatives can be great fun to discover! 

Commonly used around the 1880' to the 11920's. Storing them long term was perilous. Their sensitivity to wetness and the fragility of the glass, make these a fairly rare find 125 years later!

Notice the high Victorian fashion in the photo, it was shot on a camping trip? 

Item - 27

The decades of advancement in the photographs in this lot, leads me to think they are cohesive to one family. Every step of the home photo is seen here, over 7 decades of the hobby.

GOOGLE SEARCH: Arbnet.com. "Trees have been integral to the culture of Vassar College from its beginning.  Founder Matthew Vassar personally aid out and supervised the initial plantings in 1865.  The Class of 1868 established their most enduring campus tradition when they planted a swamp white oak, the first class tree.  But it was not until 1925 that the efforts of world-renowned landscape architect Beatrix Ferrand led to formal recognition of their campus as an arboretum.  Today there are over 2200 trees on campus, 194 of which are arboretum specimens representing over 171 species."

These reports w/photos date back to the graduating classes of the 1880's.
