Three advertisements for Sydney businesses from the 1870s, illustrated with original full-plate albumen paper photographs

They form a uniform series of three photographically illustrated advertisements for the 'Sydney Daily Telegraph', 'Thomas Webb & Sons, Glass Manufacturers', and 'Robert Harper & Co.... Importers of Coffee, Pepper, Spices, Rice, Sago, Tapioca, &c.'. Each comprises a captioned card leaf (approximately 280 × 225 mm, all edges gilt, verso blank), with an original full-plate albumen paper photograph of the respective business premises mounted in the centre, within a red printed border (two photographs are approximately 145 × 185 mm, the other one is approximately 195 × 150 mm). The advertisements are undated and uncredited, but we have recently discovered they were originally published as part of a rare volume, 'New South Wales in 1880', printed and published in Sydney by Gibbs, Shallard, & Co. Ferguson 9895a: '64 leaves carrying mounted photographs (with letterpress) of buildings, scenes, etc., in Sydney and elsewhere in New South Wales'.
