This year's Benefit Auction – part of our annual Symposium and open to the public via online bidding – is packed with stellar images and other 19th-century treasures, so mark your calendar: Saturday, Sept. 30.
More than 75 lots of exceptional photographica – including daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and tintypes, as well as ephemera and equipment – will be offered, starting at 8:30 pm ET.
Bidding will be in person for Symposium attendees and online for others worldwide through LiveAuctioneers. For information on fees and other conditions of sale, visit the Society's Auction page.
