    This is actually a glass plate positive 3 1/4X4 1/4. My mother, Beth Strange, stands on the wing of a Waco biplane in Portalnd, Me. 1937, photographed by Kahill Studios. This plate is framed on top of a polished copper back plate so that it resembles a tin type and was thought to be one until I took it apart a few years ago. I don't know it the plate is a camera original processed to a positive, or a contact print on a glass plate of a camera negative. Maybe you smart guys have seen images like this before and know how it was done.Click image for larger version.

    Cameron,
    The first image, first post looks a lot like Bug Light in Portland, ME. The structure is different, so it may not be. But what's there today is also a "spark plug" lighthouse. And the setting very much resembles the Portland breakwater today.
    First image, fourth post is the Portland Head light.
    And first image, fifth post is the Nubble, Cape Neddick, ME.

    This is a great thread. I don't know how I missed it until today. But you've really got me missing Maine now!

    I’m glad you like the thread, Will. Thanks for the information on those plates- I really appreciate it. Here is a portrait from a studio in Nebraska. It’s a 5x7 glass plate that I printed in June. Her dress is as dense as lead on the negative. The final print there took, I think, about 2 minutes burning in with the aperture wide open.

    That's a cute image. ("Cute" is a word I never thought I'd use on this forum!) But it is. I wonder how the photographer got her to hold still... and keep her white dress clean!

    Contact print I made from a 5x7 Lumiere glass plate negative. The construction of the Viaduc du Viaur in France. Made by an amateur and dated 1901 in the negative. Wouldn't OSHA have had fun at that site! Note the men scattered around on the girders - including the one being raised!Click image for larger version.

    The fellow is posing with his stereoscope. The book next to him on the table is titled, "Superior Photographs of Famous Scenes."

    Two glass negs from the WWI period. My buddy's grandfather served. The one of the guy driving the truck is his grandfather. The plates were left out in an open box since the '30's Really bad shape.Click image for larger version.
