Photos of an Opulent Brooklyn Brownstown in Clinton Hill Circa 1876

An album of 7 photographs dating back to 1876 are up for auction at the Swann Galleries. Photographed by B.J. Smith, an architectural photographer, the shots feature the interior of a Clinton Hill home that was owned by W.H. Nichols, a wealthy co-founder of the G. H. Nichols and Company. The Brownstone, once located at 353 Clinton Avenue, now looks like this.

Estimates place the auction price for the 7 original photographs between $500 and $700.
