Here is an extraordinary photo of "Auction & Negro Sales," Whitehall Street. It was made in 1864 by Barnard, George N., 1819-1902.

The photo documents Photograph of the War in the West. These photographs shows the location towards the end of the Civil War. Probably by this point such sales had ended, but the signage remained.
