You are buying a modern photographic print on Kodak Professional Endura paper. This image is copyrighted by McBride/Publisher and is not for publication without our written permission. See below for more details.

Prints are created by our contract laboratory with printers that expose light sensitive paper that is then run through a chemical process. These are real photographs, not inkjet prints.

The source of this photograph is an original glass plate negative or original celluloid negative. The negative was scanned on our Microtek ScanMaker 9600XL scanner at 600dpi, tidied up with PhotoShop software to remove blemishes, hickeys, dust motes and emulsion flaws.

Glass dry plate negatives were most popular from the 1880s through the 1920s. By the 1920s, many professional photographers had adopted the Kodak or other celluloid film as their medium of choice. In many cases, it is quite possible this negative was printed once when originally made, then stored away until now. And, because of the decades or more since that first print was made, this print is perhaps the only version of the original available today.

This negative was one of several thousand purchased in central Connecticut at the dispersal auction of a life-long collector and from other local sources, and could have been from anywhere. If any information was attached or associated with this image, it is stated in the description. Of course, as the previous owner was based in New England, many of the images are likely from that region. If you recognize people, places or can narrow down the date or content of the photograph, wed like to hear from you.

One of the fascinating aspects of these old images is that, in many cases, they are the only evidence that the people, places and events pictured existed in time and place.

The size stated in the title here is the size of the paper, with a minimum border provided on all margins to facilitate full-image matting and framing. Other sizes are available: see our other listings in our ebaY Store under Photographs.

PLEASE NOTE: From time to time, fulfillment of your purchase of one or more of our photographs from glass plates may be delayed a few extra days for this reason: many of these photos are being printed for the first time and we must order them from our contract lab in Minnesota. They are usually quick to print and send an order, but, now and then, a weekend interferes, thus delaying forwarding to you. Please be patient.
