A few months ago a friend dropped of a couple of boxes of camera stuff that no one had purchased at an auction he attended. Can't blame people for not buying it. The rats had been living in the boxes for years. Anyway delving into the mess, it was apparent that this had belonged to a Street Photographer. Some of us are old enough to remember walking down the street , having a guy take your picture, handing you a ticket and moving on. You could take the ticket to the store indicated and purchase the photo.
Anyway, in cleaning up the camera equipment I noticed a 4x5 glass plate negative. I ran it through my Epson V700 scanner and then printed out the attached photo. It is out of focus. However, it appears to be a nice piece of history. If anyone has the software to improve it, you have my permission. I would like to know what, where and when.
