Description: Jeremiah Gurney and Gurney & Son. 14 cabinet cards. While most of the photographers of these cabinet cards rose to prominence in the cabinet card era, Gurney was one of the great daguerreotypists. It is thus instructive to compare his portraits with his earlier daguerreian work, as well as those of other studios who specialized in theatrical subjects. Subject are Alice Atherton, Ella Burns, Ione Burks (2), Kate Claxton, Fanny Davenport, Rev. Charles F. Deems, D.D., Carlotta Le Clercq, Bijou Heron, Katie Mayhew, Maggie Mitchell, Tomaso Salvini, Lydia Thompson, plus one of 3 unidentified women.
