Sally Bird Howry Collection of Albumen Photographs

Sally Bird Howry was born in Monticello, Florida circa 1861. She married Judge Charles B. Howry (1844-1928), an Oxford, Mississippi native who had served in the Confederate army during the Civil War, and who later became a member of the Mississippi House of Representatives, an Assistant Attorney General, and a Judge on the United States Court of Claims. The couple lived in Washington, D.C. for many years, and traveled extensively.

This collection consists of 143 photographs, most of which are albumen prints purchased between 1900 and 1928 on Howry’s excursions to such locations as Greece, Italy, Turkey, Israel, Belgium, France, Germany, and Switzerland. Photographs depict cultural scenes, landscape views, architectural wonders, and works of art. Most prints bear studio stamps and identification numbers of Victorian photographic firms. Identified firms include: Edizioni Brogi, Fratelli Alinari, Maison Bonfils, Sebah and Joaillier, A. Noack, Schroeder Cie, and Giorgio Sommer.
