Ballston Spa, NY
View of Gallery
This orange-mount stereo view, c. 1880's, is titled in the negative "Monument Square, Front Street." Looking down the street, the sign "Photographic Studio" can be seen on the wall behind the statue on the right. And strung across the middle of the street is a large banner, advertising "J.S. Wooley's Photo Studio."
Imprinted on the reverse of the view is the legend, "A Complete Assortment of Ballston Spa and Saratoga Views May be Found at J.S. Wooley's Photo Studio."
Jesse Sumner Wooley (1867-1940) reportedly began his photographic career in 1880, and retired in 1923. His stereo work is uncommon, but usually of extremely high quality. Rarely do we find views of photographic galleries; rarer yet is one with a hanging advertising banner for the photographer. Crisp, Excellent condition. $350.00
