Floating Gallery
Oil Regions, PA

This orange-mount stereo view, c. 1880's, is titled on the mount "2807 'You know how it is yourself'. Also identified as published by C.W. Woodward of Rochester, N.Y., from the series "Oil Regions of Pennsylvania."

This floating photographer's boat has a sign on top noting "Photographic Gallery", and on the side of the building can be read "Oil Creek Artist." One man stands by the door, looking shoreward; two young boys sit in a smaller boat. Oil derricks can be seen on shore, and a couple of photorgaphs and/or print frames are leaning against the building.

The original image is not as crisp as we would all like, and CONTRAST HAS BEEN ENHANCED SLIGHTLY FOR THE SCAN. Mount corners show minute rubbing, and there is a minuscule chip in the print on the top right panel. Still, an extremely scarce and rare look at photoraphic ingenuity and enterprise in this time period. $300.00
