Description

Photographs from The Selected Image in Chicago, originally made to be sold to tourists as souvenirs, were included in this sales exhibition.

This exhibition includes 54 photographs selected by Thomas W. Southall, curator of photography, from The Collected Image in Chicago. Many of the photographs were made to be sold to tourists as souvenirs of a journey, and were made by less well known or unidentified photographers. They were chosen for their quality and the interest of the subject, and range in price from $30 to $200.
