    More Lincoln Glass Plates Discovered

    Seems like the curators are finding all sorts of Lincoln plates...

    Just caught this headline on cnn:

    Photos of crowd at Lincoln inauguration recently discovered

    http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/01/16/lin...ion/index.html

    There was also another set depicting Lincoln the day of the Gettysburg address that had recently been discovered.

    This seems to be a bad URL.

    Yes it's a broken URL. But here's one from Eastman house about the glass plates, and achieving them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEGcJGXjjT0

    Wow, that was a bad link, but I was able to track down a new one:

    http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/01/16/lin...l?iref=24hours

    There is a NY Times story that is somewhat related at:

    BTW, Mark, neat podcast.

    Re: More Lincoln Glass Plates Discovered

    My daughter bought me several boxes of half-plate glass plates at an estate auction a few weeks ago. Alas, no Mr. Lincoln in there, just 1900-ish snapshots and what look for all the world like prom pictures. *Sigh* Any advice on cleaning glass negatives? Some of them have brown spots.
