Soldiers Protecting Railroad Property During the Switchmen's Strike at Buffalo, N.Y., August, 1892

N.p. Cone Photo Co. [1892]. Excellent and rare image of the 13th Regiment Infantry, New York Volunteers on strike duty during the short-lived but violent Buffalo Switchmen's Strike of 1892. We are uncertain as to the identity of the name behind the Cone Photo Co.; no such entity appears in New York City or Buffalo business directories of the period, and we find only two published images by this photographer in public collections. Vintage albumen print, 14.5cm x 21cm (ca 5-3/4" x 8-1/4"), on printed cardboard mount, ca 28cm x 35.5cm. Captioned on mount below image, with photographer's credit. Minor fading to image; faint foxing to mount, away from image; still crisp and clear with good figural detail; Very Good.
