This is the earliest view of the Couthouse in my collection, but there are two more, which appear below.

This is a carte-de-visite by Charles Ferrand of Nevada City, c. 1860.




Next Courthouse

Judging from the growth of the trees around the courthouse, this view was taken several years later than the view in the carte-de-visite above.

This is an albumen print that was unmounted when I bought it, so it is possible it was in an album at one time, which was a common way to collect photogrpahic views in the 19th century, i.e., one collected unmounted prints and pasted them into albums. The photographer is unidentified, and the print measures 4.5 x 4.


This view of the courthouse was taken many years later, but the basic structure remains while the Georgian columns at the front door have been removed.

This print is on an odd kind of reflecting, silvery paper, and the photographer is unidentified. The print measures 4.25 x 4.5.
