We purchased a good number of 19th century photos by W. W. Briley of Flushing.
We have a Flushing Train and partail Station photo listed as well as a Cabinet Photo of a Train at Flushing. We will also be listing many Flushing photos by W.W. Briley including his studios, him with his camera, and a photographer's advertising CDV, two test prop Tintypes as well as other very interesting photos of Briley, his wife and children, very well posed and many with nice props. This is an especially interesting antique photo. It is in the Cabinet Photo format and is a very small representation. This is a photo of W. W. Briley of Flusining, Michigan. It is pencil scripted on the back, W. W. Briley. The photo was likely taken in one of his two photo studios in Flushing. We have outside Cabinet Photos of both studios listed. In this photo, Briley poses with his camera set on a tripod and he is holding a glass plate. The black cloth is draped over the camera and the camera case is under the tripod. We are also listed a CDV of Briley posing with his children. The photo is a lovely brown with a slight blue/lavender tinge and has great contrast! It is a treasure in a small package and measures 2 inches by a little over 1 3/4 inches. It is significantly large than a Tintype Gem. Please note there is a light stain at the right edge toward the bottom. If you turn the photo to catch glare, you see a tiny round spot on his trouser legs that is slightly lighter and a little duller than the rest of the surface. You will notice this light area on the photo. With glare, there is a very light and short impressed line at the lower left corner area. With glare, you are able to better see a very light and short scratch just at the top of Briley's head. A light scratch runs at the right edge of the cmera and continues to and stops at this bottom jacket edge. A light horizontal scratch about 1/4 of an inch long starts at the left edge above the middle and stops before it reaches his jacket. This photo really looks wonderful looking straight on and the glitches mentioned above are not as bad as seen below. There is no backmark and the back is pencil scripted W. W. Briley. We estimate this to have been taken about 1888 to 1892 or so, give or take a few short years. What a great photo of W. W. Briley with his camera and equipment! Please email questions and we welcome info. We pack with great care using heavy cardboard and will combine purchases to you shipping costs, but you MUST WAIT for our invoice in order to receive these savings. Please email any questions regarding packing, shipping, payment and description. Thank you.
The colored text does not appear on the actual postcard. The photo is a lovely brown with a slight blue/magenta tinge and has very good contrast.
The actual photo is just a slight hair lighter than seen below. It is a BEAUTY!
The scratches seen below are NOT AS BAD and are exaggerated below.
Our enlargements also help to further exaggerate these.
