19th Century Photographic Studios
Introduction by
John Toohey
With the assistance of George C. Berticevich, Barbara Cowan, T. Max Hochstetler and James Wyman.
Images researched and selected by Alan Griffiths.
Thanks to all the gallery owners, dealers, photo-curators, photo-historians and institutions who have allowed their scans of images and photographs to be included.
This online exhibition will be improved and we welcome examples from those who have nineteenth century sales catalogues illustrating or describing studio backgrounds. If anybody has done an analysis of the manufacturers supplying backgrounds we'd be most interested.
