[Unidentified Sites In England] [negative]: an unidentified street scene, probably in Liverpool
Sears, Thomas Warren 1880-1966
2 negatives: b&w ; 3.5 x 6 in
United Kingdom, England, Merseyside, Liverpool
[between 1906 and 1908]
Originals were nitrate negatives which have been digitized and the nitrate negatives destroyed. Duplicate film negatives are at Photographic Services, Smithsonian Institution (OIPPS). Negative Numbers: 94-7383 and 94-7384.
The signs include "Large Rooms To Be Let, J Steel & Son, 17 Water Street," "Vivian & Sons Copper & Yellow Metal Warehouse, 16 Water Street," "Old Ship Inn," and "Simpson & . . . Ironmonger." Thomas W. Sears took several photographs in Liverpool on Sunday, July 7, 1906; Water Street is a known location in Liverpool, and the Vivian & Sons firm is known to have a branch in Liverpool, making this city the likely location for these images. However, Sears may also have visited the city in 1908, making the dating of the image less precise.
