New York, N.Y.: Not Published, 1875. F [26357] (Americana - 19th Century - Photography - New York City). An Album of 19th & Early 20th Century Photographs of New York City Historic Scenes, People and Architecture from the T.F. Healy Collection A collection of 35 photographs of various locations in the city, in various sizes and using several photographic processes and formats. Most are approx. 7" x 9"; some larger, some smaller; sizes are noted below. Some have identifying notes mounted below images, some with information on their backer sheets, below the images or on the reverse of the images themselves. Most of the photographs are rubber stamped "T.F. Healy Collection," on their backs or lower edges. Several of the photos are mounted on paper backers which were in turn loosely corner-mounted on gray paper album pages. They were collected by Thomas F. Healy in the early and middle part of the 20th century; the collection was often cited and referenced in periodicals as a source for research during that time and after.

The photos are usually loosely corner-mounted on the album pages; only one image (the panorama) appears to be affixed to the backer page, at its center portion. Several corners of images are chipped away or have a little edge-crinkling, especially on the albumen photos. Most of the paper backer-sheets are detached from the post binding of the album and are loose; many images are now loose from their mountings and are simply laid-in. The collection as a whole is in good to very good condition and is an interesting architectural preservation and social history photographic record of New York City at the time, from a well-known collection; especially useful that most of them are carefully identified. PLEASE NOTE: WE WILL SEND MORE IMAGES ON REQUEST. Very Good (Item ID: 26357)
