Description:
Photochrome print from the negative by W.H. Jackson. Title and imprint in gilt at bottom of image. 16x48.5 cm. (6¼x19"), mounted on period backing board, framed under glass. The photochrome [i.e. fotochrom] process for colorizing and printing photographs was invented in Germany in the 1880's, and was licensed to the Detroit Photographic Company. William H. Jackson was hired by the company in 1897, and brought his stable of negatives as well as continuing to take new photographs. The present example seems to be slightly trimmed at the sides, judging from comparison with the image in the Library of Congress.
