E&HT Anthony & Co., Photographic Logo, 1892 Engraving. Courtesy Bruce C. Cooper Collection.
Stereoview detail showing an E. & H.T. Anthony exhibit displaying their products. Plainly visible in the view is their banner in front of the display with "E. & H.T. Anthony & Co. 591 Broadway -New York-". And on the rear wall above is "Anthony's Department". Other signs, read with a magnifier, are for- Dallmeyer Lenses- Photographic Chemicals- Stereoscopes, Views and Albums- Albumenized Papers. Shown are 2 posing chairs and 2 headrests, a camera on its stand and another just visible on a table, many photographs of varying sizes, a Graphoscope, 3 stereoscopes, in the display cases appear to be albums and small frames, on the rear table are chemical bottles, and beside and behind is a large round object, possibly a mirror. To the left is a display of photos on a wood hexagon like frame. To the right as another display of frames and photos, including stereoviews, plus many lenses. Signs read "Pictures Made with Dallmeyer Lense", "The Celebrated Voigtlander"(lenses), plus a large one that is cut off on the right that reads, "Velvet Po?? Holmes" Ste(reoscope?) 555 Broad(way?). Then across the aisle from Anthony's, at the bottom of the view, are large framed pictures plus a display case with camera lenses. Overhead hang U.S. flags with 34 stars and a mezzanine(?) with chairs visible and ornaments on the walls. Anthony moved to 591 Broadway in 1871 but those 34 star flags date to 1861 to 1863. No photographer's ID' It could possibly be made by Anthony after they quit using their logo on views in 1874. Or maybe they made a short run just for this exhibit and didn't bother with a logo or title. Don't know where or when this exhibit took place, possibly a photography exhibition or convention.
