My prints from Mathew Brady's original plates......Bill Ryan

Matthew Brady with the First Pennsylvania Light Artillery, Petersburg , June1864    
Mathew Brady risked his life many time in acquiring his Civil War Collection.  Sadly the post war public rejected his works.  He died a bankrupt, blind and virtually alone.  However, he did owe The Edward Anthony Company some money......the company still existed as Ansco, 130 years later in Binghamton N.Y.   I was there.
Here is some history, of Edward Anthony, Ansco, and my large
collection of prints from original Brady collection negatives
