NOTMAN, WILLIAM [PHOTOGRAPHER]
TWO CARTES-DES-VISITES studio portraits of James Muir and Mrs. Muir of Montreal
, , . The price is for the pair of photos.
¶ We offer two studio photo portraits by the famed Montreal photographer, William Notman (1826-1891). Each measures approximately 15 x 10.5 cm. and bears the W. Notman Royal Warrant (crest) on the reverse. The photographs are of Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Muir of Montreal. On the back of Mr. Muir's portrait is written in pencil "Lt. James Muir / Volunteer Cavalry / Montreal Cavalry / No. 1 Troop 1865". This information may have been copied from entry number I-16643.1 at the McCord Museum in Montreal, the major repository of Notman photos. The photo associated with this entry is of Mr. Muir in full military regalia and the information in the pencilled note, referred to above, identifies this entry. It is one of only two photos of Muir listed in the museum's holdings, both being military in nature. On the reverse of Mrs. Muir's photo is written in ink: "Mrs. J. Muir / Montreal". Both photos appear to have been thumb-tacked at the very top of the cartes (small perforation), but are otherwise in very good condition.
