Billington Photo

As with other Billington's I've seen, stunning details.  See blowups below...

Man selling photographs?  The left placard doesn't look like postcards to me, at least not represented by the collection.  The right placard could match the proportions of studio tintypes or possibly stereoviews.

 

victorian rain gutters

 

Ladder.  I don't think it's the same ladder as the one later affixed to the SW tower, making the prospect of construction even more believable.

 

lots of signs (click to enlarge further)

 

sailboat

 

fish jumping? a scratch on the negative?

 

sawhorses?

 

The grill work is my favorite.  I wonder if anyone stopped to take close-up photos of it?

 

Debris, no people....was the place even open? There's a year written on the reverse, but the writing could be modern speculation for all I know.
