Check this stunning and exceptionally well-preserved 7" x 9" platinum matte photograph of philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, mounted on a 10" x 12" dark mat backing on which he has signed his name and inscribed "For Mr. John W. DeVoy, Esq., Brooklyn / New York, December 18th, 1905." Also hand-signed by the photographer in white in the lower right corner is "Davis and Sanford," the prestigious studio founded in 1892 who catered mainly to photographing New York's social elite.
