I was particularly pleased to
receive an example of a photograph from the Newport studio of Brown,
Barnes & Bell which had been over-painted in oil.
This was sent to me by Rick
Devin, Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA. Rick believes that the photo is of his great-grandfather.
The photo measures about 11ins x 9 ins and was mounted in an oval gold leaf
frame, marked on the back: Last
one of this style left. 1.50."
