Washington, D.C., circa 1898. “Gettig, Chas. (New York baseball player).” Charlie Gettig, who played for the Giants. 5×7 inch glass negative



Cleveland circa 1900. “Perry-Payne Building, Superior Avenue.” This fine old structure, completed in 1888, survives today as an apartment building; the Brown Jug next door has, alas, evaporated along with its “Fine Old Whiskies.” 8×10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company
