Early 20th Century Albumen Print - Winter Snow Scene with Trees

A fine example of vernacular photography, this vintage photograph shows the results of a snow storm or blizzard, with snow beautifully covering the ground.

It was taken in West Chester, Pennsylvania in the first couple of decades of the 20th century (some time between 1900 and 1919). The photo was apparently taken by a professional photographer and is on his studio's mount, but the image has the look for a more casual snapshot -though it's very well composed- than an attempt at fine art.

The print is 13.75" wide and 7.5" tall. Frame is 15.675" by 9.25".

Condition: photo is fine. Mat has some marks on the back from the nails holding it into the frame. The frame (which is contemporary to the photo) does show some wear to the surface which can be seen in the pics.

Mark: blind-stamped "Bell Studios West Chester, PA" in the lower margin of the mat.
