Black and white stereograph image of the City Market, with double image pasted down on an orange card. Back of card is pink with printed publisher information and title information hand written in ink. Under the written title is some other written information, possibly in German. The City Market building depicted here was built in 1872 and replaced an earlier market building built in 1821. It was a two story structure designed by Augustus Schwab and Martin P. Muller.
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.
