Antique Telegraph Albumen Photo / Bicycle Messenger's:
Titled " THE SPRINGFIELD DISTRICT TELEGRAPH FORCE " which was located at 43 South Limestone st. Springfield, I am guessing either in Massachusetts or Illinois. The President and manager " W.B. Tattershall" resided at 484 South Limestone st. as found in 1889-1890 Springfield directory. There are fifteen people in the photo. The photo show's there Bike's and the boy's dressed in uniform. This photo has a nice even deep brown sepia tone to it, thus bringing sharp and crisp image's. Photo measure's : 9 1/8" x 6 1/4" and the cardboard measure's : 10" x 8". This original Albumen photo is from the 1890's and are hard to find with such clarity. Good Luck
