Two rare CDVs taken in Benicia, California by San Francisco photographer Silas Selleck. The first shows the Benicia Brewery, the name visible on the sign above the building. The second image shows downtown Benicia, with some pedestrians and store signs visible.. a very readable one handing above the door of A. McDonell's Dry Goods & Groceries store. I found McDonell's store in an 1860s Benicia directory.

Neither CDV has an imprint, but I'm sure they were both taken by Silas Selleck; the CDV with the two Civil War tax stamps are hand-cancelled "S.S".

Both are 4" x 2.5" and in very good antique condition with light foxing.

Boxed & signed Priority Mail shipping.. boxed Express Mail is also available at checkout.
