Jour­ney back to the 1860s with Beryl Vos­burgh’s re­mark­able and un­ri­valled col­lec­tion of many thou­sands of cartes de vis­ite, gath­ered to­gether over more than 40 years of col­lect­ing and trad­ing. Care­fully se­lected, they were sorted in nu­mer­ous dif­fer­ent ways us­ing her ex­pert and idio­syn­cratic eye, from ‘Nice Hats’ to ‘Why did they go to the pho­tog­ra­phers?’ Trained as an ac­tress, Beryl’s warm per­son­al­ity made Ju­bilee, her lit­tle shop in Cam­den Pas­sage, a hub for every­one from en­thu­si­asts to film stars to come and in­dulge their pas­sion for vin­tage pho­to­graphs and equip­ment. The sale will in­clude a huge va­ri­ety of vin­tage im­ages, from Da­guerreo­types to An­gus McBean and Ce­cil Beaton.
