A fine original silver gelatin photograph, hand-colored, from the studio of Winter & Pond, Juneau, Alaska. More information about these pioneering Alaskan photographers is included below. This original photograph is sold unframed. Photo is in very good condition with no holes or tears. There is a small area of very light discoloration (hard to see) along the left edge which does not detract from the photo. Studio name appears in the lower right corner with the title in the lower left. The measurements are 10.5 by 6.75 inches approximately. There is no writing on the verso. This is a classic image of Juneau, beautiful detail throughout. An excellent opportunity to add this very rare photograph by two well known early Alaskan frontier photographers to your fine collection.
About the artists-
Lloyd Valentine Winter (1866-1945) and Edwin Percy Pond (1872-1943), of the photography company, Winter & Pond, were prominent Alaskan photographers. In 1893, Winter came to Juneau from San Francisco and entered a partnership with George M. Landerkin, known as Landerkin and Winter. In 1894, Landerkin was bought out by Winter's long time friend, E.P. Pond.
Winter & Pond operated their Juneau-based curio and photography studio for over 50 years, providing a unique reflection of the state in the early 20th century. This partnership continued until Pond's death at age 71 in 1943. In 1945, two years after the death of E.P. Pond, Lloyd Winter turned the business over to Francis Harrison, who maintained the Winter & Pond Co. until it closed in 1956.
