For What It’s Worth

A rare photo came my way recently, half of a stereopticon image depicting “The Garden of Arthur Curtis James-Ocean Drive.” The image shows a portly man (presumably, James) in formal clothing, wearing a top hat and greeting visitors who have arrived in a covered carriage. His home is in the background. Six people can be seen in the image. Exceedingly rare: cost $50. Value: priceless! .
