[Loose Photographs]: Bermuda

Bermuda: 1899-1900.

Price: $1,800.00

Unbound. A collection of 96 sepia-toned or black and white albumen photographs measuring between 2.5" x 3" and 3.5" x 4.5" with a single caption on the photo studio sleeve. Slight curling and some fading thus very good.

An archive of loose photographs housed in their original studio sleeve detailing a trip to Bermuda between 1899 and 1900. Most of the photos lack captions except for the studio sleeve. The photos show local Bermudians posed by island foliage, working, and spending days at the beach as well as houses, stores, and the recently constructed Government House. The travelers, who are all Caucasian, are also photographed at the beaches, picnicking, and in candids with friends. Many photos show large ships off the coast of the island. One of the photos is an action shot of uniformed men marching down the streets of the city, presumably as part of one of four parades put on by the Royal Bermuda Regiment during the year. Other photos show a young black boy posed by a fern, women in fancy hats sitting on a bench under a tree, maids cleaning windows, and people working in an office.

A nice collection of turn of the century Bermuda photography.
