CABINET CARD OF WESTERN UNION OFFICE OUT WEST

$95.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1013-11

Interesting cabinet card photo of a rather burly man standing in front of a Western Union Telegraph office.

Visible above the large doorway to the building is a row of 8 telegraph insulators with wires running off the top of the photo. Behind the man posed in front of the building is a sign that reads “PACIFIC EXPRESS COMPANY.” Across the doorway on the lintel support is another sign that reads “UNITED STATES EXPRESS” and above this along the side of the lintel is another sign that reads “WESTERN UNION TELEGRAPH OFFICE.” Running in front of the building is a typical Western wood planked sidewalk with a somewhat rocky dirt road in front.

Across the bottom of the image is a period ink inscription that reads “COMPLIMENTS OF “SMITH.”

The image is clear with good contrast. There I a faint crease running across the image about a third of the way up from the bottom. This does not really affect the image much.

There is no photographers imprint.  [ad]
