London Bridge 1870's

John L. Stoddard.  Portfolio of Photographs of Famous Scenes, Cities and Paintings Chicago:  The Werner Company, 1893
John Lawson Stoddard was an American who traveled around the world between 1874 and 1876, and used his experiences to become a celebrated speaker on the American lecture circuit.  Although he did not take his own photographs, he gave specific directions to his photographer and these photos offer a wonderful glimpse into life over a century ago.  I'll be posting more of these photos from time to time.
