(NP (La Crosse, WI): Art Publishing Company., 1887).

FIRST EDITION, RARE EARLY PHOTOGRAPHY OF LA CROSSE, WISCONSIN. No photographic credits are given, but the quality is excellent, with shots of downtown streets with people congregating. The printed text describes places photographed. They are exquisitely crisp, 19th century, artistic, black and white photographs that showcase picturesque views. Many of these sites have changed physically since these were taken, so these photos document an earlier environment. Item #27858
