Two by Harrington

 

Today I will show you two CdVs of young men, both taken by Harrington, both at his new gallery.

 

Both images date from the 1870s or 80s. I have several photographs made by Harrington that I will gradually post for your examination. Unfortunately all my resource sites have no information on this photographer! How is that even possible when I have so many photos? Regardless, it appears that the photographer relocated from *somewhere* to his new gallery with improved French light on the ground floor, just one door south of Barnett’s Dental Rooms. Imagine getting an advertisement today noting the location of another business in its direction! My guess is that the lower photograph was made before the cards for the upper photograph came in, necessitating the stamp.

    Interesting! I wonder what “improved French light” means.
