Sally was one of the rare woman photographers of the period, and was unique in that glass negatives were usually produced by men due to the heaviness of the equipement. She specialised in photographs of the coutryside and landscapes as well as archicteture of the area. In 1905, Sally toured Brome County taking photographs of the most pictoresque sites.
