Washington, D.C., Vintage Photo Collection – Colorized Photos and Portfolios.

Lot 779. Washington, D.C., Vintage Photo Collection – Colorized Photos and Portfolios. Eight colorized photos, each about 8” x 10” and nm, are part of this collection. Three, which are noted, are hand-colored in oil by artist-photographer Royal H. Carlock, who specialized in the architectural treasures in the national’s capital and nearby areas. His work began there in the 1920s. Two different photos, one by Carlock, capture the U.S. Capitol from different perspectives. The photo not by Carlock is 6” x 8.” The White House is the subject of two Carlock works. One, with little colorization, shows the residence of Presidents in winter. Two photos, one by Washington photographer C. O. Buckingham with a 1922 copyright, show the Lincoln Memorial. Cherry blossoms are present in both. The version by an unidentified photographer has a blurred image, which creates an intriguing artistic effect. In contrast (pun intended), the Buckingham image is sharp. Blossoms are evident in two 7” x 9” photos, one of the Washington Monument, and the other, of the Jefferson Memorial. Colorization in the Washington Monument photo is minimal, and it has a black & white appearance. All photos are framed, primarily in older, basic frames, but we could ship them unframed. The glass on the photo with the Washington Monument is cracked, and we can either unframe the photo or ship it as is. Two portfolios contain undated, offset-printed black & white photos, possibly from 1940s or earlier negatives. One portfolio comprises “Ten Beautiful Aero Views of Washington, D.C.” by Nesco Prints. Each photo is about 9.25” x 12” (6.25” x 8.5” image area). The Capitol, the White House, Mount Vernon and other areas in and around the city are shown. Ex-m to nm. The “Washington Portfolio” consists of 32 b&w 8.5” x 11” photos (7” x 9.25” image area) by Thomas N. White. Washington buildings, monuments and some geologic formations are pictured. Ex to ex-m. Fifty photos of the nation’s capital! And our opening bid is slightly lower than the typical price for a single Carlock colorized photo! Minimum Bid $25.
