That old photo album? Check it before you toss it out.
A very early photograph of New York City in the 1840s has sold for $62,500. The photo depicting Manhattan’s Upper West Side as open countryside was sold Monday at Sotheby’s auction house.
The photo is a daguerreotype, an early form of photography that was used mainly for portraits. It is believed to date from 1848 and shows a white house with shutters, a grassy hillside and a horse-drawn carriage.
