A Bridge Under Construction
Three-quarter plate English ambrotype showing a bridge under construction across a river, ca. 1860. Housed in period oval passe-partout and an antique black wood frame, overall dimensions 8 x 9.75 inches (20x24 cm). Price: $4,500. ( Inventory# gd73 )
Just an amazing image, with excellent detail. At lower left bottom a river boatman is partially visible in his craft. As the river's waters wind off into the distance, partitioned fields are visible on the rolling hills beyond. From a decades-long accumulation of images dispersed some time ago in London.
