Absolutely stunning image of a forest fire with hand coloring on the flames. Such a wild image. So moody and hauntingly beautiful.
Imagine some person dragging their bulky camera equipment into a forest fire to take a photo. The things one does for art!
Image comes from the late 1800s. Has crease on right edge of card, but previous owner reinforced it with some tape along the back of it. It's feels pretty solid now.
Please refer to photos for condition. Measures 10" X 7 3/4"
Sold as is.
Cabinet Cards were a style of photograph first introduced in 1863 by Windsor & Bridge in London, the cabinet card is a photographic print mounted on card stock. The Cabinet card got its name from its suitability for display in parlors -- especially in cabinets -- and was a popular medium for family portraits. They were popular until about 1900 when Kodak amateur photography took over.
