This group of 8 old glass negatives shows pictures of a parade and a couple marked Sautelle‘s (circus, I assume). The black/white negatives are all 4“ X 5“, most in original paper sleeves. I think all are central NYS though they are unidentified as to location. I did find them with a batch of glass negatives, some identified as Sidney, Unadilla, with visits to Middletown, and probably other nearby NYS locations.

Most of these appear to be the same parade. The paper sleeves are marked “Tournament“. One is at a railroad crossing and building along with a crowd of people wearing Edwardian clothing. Another has a sign that looks like P. Mason (or Manon, or Manor), H & L #1. Another negative shows a sign with the name Fancher. Others show the uniformed marching bands and groups wearing badges.

The two that are related to Sautelle‘s circus are labeled on the sleeves: Band wagon,(Sautelle), and, Clown - Sautelle‘s. The hand writing on the sleeves is different from the “Tournament Sleeves“ . The band wagon is decorated and apparently traveling down a street. The clown is on a wagon and a is being pulled. Sig Sautelle‘s w9th century to early 20th century circus was ultimately based in Homer NY and also traveled the country.

The negatives are in generally good condition with great detail. One is broken with a piece gone at a corner. Some have some minor spots on the surface or edge. Others have minor edge flaws or edge discoloration. They are still a fascinating glimpse of a bygone day!

Please note! The U.S. postage quoted for this item is the Priority Mail rate from me in NYS to those exotic places such as California or Hawaii. The closer you are to New York, the less that cost will be. If you would like to purchase this item let me know - I can change the postage to reflect the right rate or I will refund the difference.

This will ship by Priority Mail in the U.S. or First Class Mail International to other countries.

Always happy to combine shipping. Just let me know which items you want to combine and I will let you know the S&H cost. Please see our Profile and Shipping Policies for other info.

Thanks for looking!
