W. F. Spencer was a popular photographer in Delaware County, New York from circa 1859 to 1886. He operated at several locations in the area including Stamford, Gilboa and Prattsville. Despite his photographic success he was perhaps more popularly known locally as a jeweler and watchmaker.
I have recently acquired four rare stereoviews that were published by William F. Spencer. The photographs depict scenes from in and around the village of Stamford in Delaware County.
