Half Plate Ruby Ambrotype of a City

Half plate ruby ambrotyope of a small town, taken from across a medium sized river. Signs are legible on the building at center, in front of the church, reading "IRON STORE" and on the awning of a hotel at center-left reading "O. ODELL'S HOTEL." A planked ferry road leads to the river.  Low mountains in the distance suggest western New York or Pennsylvania.  


Lacking case, with mat and preserver, and a hook for hanging soldered to the preserver. Plate with several scratches.
