    Vintage Glass Plate Negatives

    April 11, 2018

    What follows are images from a haul of 4x5 and 5x7 glass plate negatives made in Maine in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. A colleague of mine gave them to me. They were made by her great grandfather.

    I don't know if our forum has a thread where people are sharing images made from old glass plate negatives. If not, I'd love to see other people contribute images here. I once was the printer for the photo archive of the Western History Collection at the University of Oklahoma. For $4 an hour, I made prints from 19th and early 20th Century glass plates made in the "Old West." We had a few plates as large as 20x24". I love this stuff, and I'd love to see what you folks might have sitting around your own little home archives.

    Me too. You found some super negatives. Here's a scan from a 5x7 glass plate negative. I think it was probably made with a Simon Wing Ajax or New Gem multiplying camera.

    You guys have a gold mine.

    Some of us have been posting old glass negs willy-nilly. Maybe we have a dedicated thread and we need to merge.

    I shot a couple 100-year-old NOS 5X7 plates a few months ago and posted somewhere.

    Here's my hat on a stick, barely visible. Took a lot of light Shot on 5 by moe.randy, on Flickr

    We also have Nodda Duma manufacturing and selling quality NEW GLASS PLATES.



    We welcome your additions.
