LIVE AUCTION LOTS

[Lots 1-25]  [Lots 26-50]  [Lots 51-75]  [Lots 76-85]


LOT 76. BUDDIES

Sixth plate daguerreotype. Full case. Is there attitude, or is this just who they are? Whatever, they are buddies, and that is clear. Strong composition grounded by the walking stick.

RESERVE AUCTION.

ESTIMATE: $650 – 750.

 

  


Lot 79: EBENEZER ELIJZH HENRY, MISSOURI, KANSAS & TEXAS W. RAILROAD CO.

Pair of albumen prints on one page (6 ¼ X 7 ¾ inches. 6 X 8 inches). 

The top photograph features two men standing on the railroad tracks. “E.E. Henry” appears in the water by the boat. The bottom photograph shows a train. The engine is emblazoned with “M.K. & T. R. W. Co.” We presume the “W” stands for west. There are men in front of the train, on top of the train and in the doorways of the train. We can see a busy town to the left. Wikipedia offers a good history of the “M.K & T.” Railroad as it came to be known, and eventually shortened to “Katy.”

RESERVE AUCTION.

ESTIMATE: $400 - 500.


Lot 82: ROMANTIC SEA CAPTAIN, ENGLAND

Quarter plate daguerreotype. Full split case. He looks like a dreamer, but he must be aware of those missing at sea. Fantastic presentation, with the ship model an immense presence.

RESERVE AUCTION.

ESTIMATE: $4000 – 5000.
