I found a box of old photography paraphernalia in my family's house; apparently my mom got it at a garage sale some time back. Included are some developing chemicals and flash-pistol cartridges, baffles for creating ornamental borders, etc. (All of this will be documented later.) The information on the flash-pistol cartridge box matches an ad placed in several photography journals from 1909 (go go Gadget websearch!). Included is a half-pound can of "Rumford Baking Powder", emptied out and used to store photo negatives. Some of them are really gorgeous and well-composed. This morning, I got up early and walked through the mist-grey air to scan them... for you!
Below are the negatives; mouse over for positive-adjusted versions! (See what I do for you.)
Alas, this one didn't come out well, but the negative looks clearer than that; I know I can get a better image. Try, try again...
Clicking -> Picasa album. These are all the negatives - but there is plenty of photo'ing yet to be done! At some point, I'll share pictures of the rest of the stash (containers, etc.). I'm sharing all of these under Creative Commons (I doubt that the mystery photographer is still alive). You can use and alter them however you want, but please give credit.
