Notes:
Robert Bagby was a well-known commercial color photographer whose subjects included landscapes and fashion. He was a professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology (Rochester, N.Y.), teaching courses in color photography.
Summary:
33 Stereo Realist color slides, with viewer, in fitted case; and four 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" black-and-white lantern slides. Several images depict the photographer himself, possibly self-portraits. Other subjects include landscapes, houses, covered bridges, the Washington Monument and other Washington buildings, cherry blossoms in Washington, fashion models, and a commercial still life. Three of the lantern slides are dated 1919, and probably were collected by Bagby. The other lantern slide, possibly a self-portrait, shows him astride a motorcycle.
