Chimney Sweep at Work


CDV-format albumen print circa 1870, superb and rare vintage image of a young chimney sweep seated next to a fireplace or furnace entrance, holding his brush and still covered in soot from his work. Taken by an unidentified British amateur.   Price: $850.   ( Inventory# id997 )


Based on other cartes-de-visite this was found with, image was likely taken by the householder while the sweep paused from his work in their home. A very genuine and invaluable period document.
