Black and white photograph affixed to cream card. Back of card, also cream colored, has printed publication information and title handwritten in ink. This may be one half of a stereograph. The view is looking north from possibly Broughton Street towards the Nathaniel Green Monument on Johnson Square and the old City Exchange building in the background.
The photographer of this card was Jerome N. Wilson. He was born in New York but came to Savannah in 1865, seeing opportunities to expand his profession and rebuild an economy. He was a professional photographer. He advertised as a photographer of cabinet cards, carte de visits, stereographs, ferrotypes, frames, and other photographic services. His success was mixed and he was involved in a number of lawsuits, large and small, some as trivial as an overhanging sign. Much of his property was lost due to these suits. He partnered with several photographers over the years. Wilson died in 1897.
