PPTT133. A number of years ago I purchased a collection of material related to W.E. Bowman, photographer in Ottawa, Illinois. The material was collected by James Jensen who wrote the book “W.E. Bowman, General Photographer,” in 1979. Included in the collection was this ninth-plate tinted tintype of a woman. Inside the case, behind the tintype is handwritten “W.E. Bowman Artist” and “50 cts, ’60.” Also on paper behind the image is written “W.E. Bowman Artist, 50 cts in 1860.” I believe that both of these handwritten notations are in Bowman’s hand. This is one of the only cased images I’ve ever seen by Bowman who learned photography in 1857 from DeWitt S. Rawson, a photographer from Peru, Illinois. VG. $100
