19th & 20th Century Photography & Ephemera
Ephemera and photography are often the Â“stuffÂ” from which historic truth is extracted. Casual images, souvenirs and fleeting Â“cast-offsÂ” provide an unvarnished truth of daily life of the period. This sale offers a variety of such examples. Offered in this sale is a photograph and letter regarding an early 1900Â’s Ohio State sports director courted by a promoter of Japanese baseball. More than 90 graphic circa 1936 Â“before-and-afterÂ” photographs document the important, dramatic relief Brooklyn surgeon Cutler provided to his patients. The political fervor of 1884 is fueled by a colorful broadside promoting parade, oil-torches for citizens marching in the streets. Explore the obscure!
