Stone Collecton




James N. Stone Jr. (1851-1911) was a lawyer and amateur photographer. He became a member of the Philadelphia Photographic Society in 1868. The Stone Collection contains photographic images in a variety of formats, some of which were taken by Stone, and others which he simply collected. Among the highlights are a photo album assembled by his son Frank S. Stone in 1912 (which contains photos taken by James Stone Jr. and Ellersbie Wallace Jr.), a rare daguerreotype by Robert Cornelius and a photo of Independence Hall taken from the Philadelphia Photographic Society’s rooms at 520 Walnut St.
