Illinois College of Photography

5-1/4x4" photograph, mounted on 8x10" brown board. According to the typewritten note originally attached, these are the students at the Illinois College of Photography in Effingham, Ill., sometime between 1895 and 1910.

Judging from the photo and mount, we woudld put the image closer to the 1910 date.

Dozens of photographs hang on the wall behind the studnets; a large view camera on stand is evident at the right; and the student taking the "self-portrait" isn't trying to hide anything. The item on the floor next to the soccer ball appears, at first glance, to be a camera, but on closer inspection may be either a camera obscura of some sort, or a large hand-held viewer.

Nice image; maybe you have a relative here? Excellent. $75.00
