Auction Success

     I just returned from bidding on a few lots at a sale at Freeman’s Auction, and my heart is still pounding. The adrenaline really gets going when there is bidding happening on the floor, on the phones, and on the internet and you don’t want to lose track of what’s happening. I succeeded in buying the one lot I most wanted—a ca. 1870s albumen photograph of the Wissahickon by Philadelphia photographer John C. Browne. This photograph was one that was missing in an album of Browne photographs given to us last year and it is great to be able to reunite it with companion pieces.
