This carefully chosen collection features an impressive range of works encompassing portraiture, landscape, still life, and cultural history, dramatically presenting American life during this period. The range of photographic processes represented includes silver gelatin prints, collotypes, bromide photo prints, photogravures, and dye transfer prints, demonstrating the versatility of the medium.
