Default Thumbnail Image A

Four images of Hières-sur-Amby,
circa 1850-1855 or possibly earlier. Three oval and one rectangular salt prints from calotype negatives, the smallest 7 x 11 1/8 inches (177 x 280 mm), laid to old card. One image with slight surface soiling, otherwise in very good condition.
An interesting group of salt prints, probably from waxed paper negatives. The images have been identified as of Hières in a later hand. This attribution appears correct; a tentative note in the same hand suggests Baldus as the photographer. If this is correct, these would likely be from his series Les Villes de France Photographiées.
