Toronto. I got a note recently from an associated image and camera club – The Daguerreian Society. The estate (at least the photography portion) of their late member, Lewis Lehr, will go under the hammer this Saturday.
The email poster says in part, “Cameras and Images from the estate of Lewis Lehr are selling at 1pm November 20th in Ohio. This is a sale not to be missed. Over 350 items including ephemera he collected over the last 50 years.
“Lewis was a member of The Daguerreian Society since its inception. He started collecting photography in the late 1960s with many road trips through Ohio searching for rare items.” Click on the Burns Auction address below to see the lots. Read carefully the pick up address and added charges.
Note that the lots are mostly estimated at a very wide range of USD – not a reliable indicator of value (caveat emptor). Also, the auction house lists some items from previous auctions below the Lehr estate items on each page.
