Posed, Set-Piece and English Classic Views
(page one)

These pages contain probably the widest range of views by subject, age and price of any on the site. There are many very early views, but also included are everything from curved mounts and amateur views to salt prints and fine 1850s studio compositions. There are TWO pages so please don't miss the link at the bottom of this page. Please note: Some views have a slight orange tinge which was caused by my new scanner before I got the hang of it. Difference in size is also due to scanner settings. The English Classic views in color are in the color section. Please click here for those, although there are a few in these pages.

Many of the next section are of that type.
