A phenomenal sixth size street scene with signage, but the exact location still remains unidentified. The obvious damage is bothersome but the powerful allure after fine restoration by Casey remains intact. He used a different brass mat, but it was the same shape as the original one that had previously disappeared when he acquired the view taken in an unknown city. We have interpreted the signage thusly: “James D. Gay (Cay?) Florist & Seedman; Choice Plant, Rose bushes, Garden Seeds; Fresh & Ornamental Trees. Shoe Store – Philip ?? These tradesmen presented their wares detailing how items were sold on the street about 173 years ago. Visit any farmers market world-wide and not much has changed except the vehicles and the vendors. The complete leather case has an unusual floral design on the cover and an intricate geometric representation on the reverse.
