National Association of Photographers
A pair of yellow mount stereo views without rear imprint, but identified as showing the E. & H.T. Anthony exhibit at the 1870 National Association of Photographers convention in Cleveland, Ohio.
The top image shows a superb overview of the exhibit; signs that can be read include the main Anthony sign in the foreground, and others over cases noting "Sole Agent for Celebrated Dallmeyer Lenses," "Photographic Chemicals," "Stereoscopes, Views and Albums," "Albuminized Papers." The display cases show stereoscopes, brass lenses, frames, etc., etc.
The second view shows another angle of the Anthony exhibit in the foreground; and looking down the aisle is the exibit of William B. Holmes, 555 Broadway, New York, and his imported Voigtlander lenses. At the far end of the aisle in the exhibit of Scovill Manufacturing Co. of New York, with cameras and tripods. Behind that is apparently the main podium, proclaiming "Photography 1870", "Elevate Your Art and It Will Elevate You."
Two extremely rare views, without additional imprinting. Both show wear to the card mounts, especially the corners, and both have a slight stain on the right edge of the mount. $975.00
