Swaim's Photograph Rooms
Mount Holly, NJ

A crisp carte-de-viste, c. 1860's. Showing Swaim's Photograph Rooms, Mount Holly, New Jersey. The photographer, or one of his assistants, can be seen in the middle window; on the shelf outside the right window is a chemical bottle, and what appear to be some images. Framed photographs hang outside the studio, and six people pose outside the door.
The back imprint advertises "William Swaim, Photographer, Mill Street, next door to Farmer's Bank, Mount Holly, N.J." The carte also notes that negatives will not be preserved more than one year, unless purchased. The carte is in Excellent condition, except for minuscule "silvering" in the sky area, caused by the original printing. Views of photographer's studios are extremely rare. $275.00
