sunset-at-bf-glassplate

This image is from a glass plate negative.  Captured in 1910, this was titled “Sunset at Bristol Ferry”.  I don’t know that this image is by Sarah Eddy, but she was a marvelous photographer working around the Bristol Ferry area at that time.  The Bristol Ferry area attracted many artists and photographers.  The quality of the light there was special.  Artists and photographers especially came during the summer season, but many had permanent studios in the area.  I found this small glass plate on Ebay, but I know that other glass plates may be found in Portsmouth attics.  Hopefully we can uncover more about the Bristol Ferry artist colony.
