    Re: Found Photographs

    Thanks for the date info to all.
    I knew several people who were stationed there from the early 50's onwards.
    This adds another small piece to the stories.

    I found some more photos this weekend, glass slides. Rolling mill, pouring off slag, NY, 1911. These remind me of Jim Galli.

    That's a lovely picture. I presume the colour was added; in such a minimalist way terrific lighting and detail. Love the horseshoe and the broom!

    That is an awesome scene, how was this colorized?

    Re: Found Photographs

    Does anyone know if there is a forum dedicated to the collection and sharing of 19th and early 20th century photographs? I can not find one. I have found some personal websites, some flicker and facebook groups, but don't care for either of those. I just wish there was a forum for "found photograph collecting".

    A fairly recent acquisition:



    Daguerreotype

    The mat - This particular style of mat, sandy texture, beveled nonpareil, dates from about 1845-1852.

    The clothing - In the style of the 1840's and 50's.

    The plate - 1/6th plate, slightly turned up edges match the 1844-1850 time-frame, no crimp marks. The plate thickness from 1845 and on = .016". This one is .016".
    Manufacturer hallmark on the plate - In 1850 Scoville incorporated - the hallmark on this plate reads "Scoville Mfg Co. Inc." - this daguerreotype must be 1850 or after.

    Based on all of these factors, this image was likely made in the early 1850's.

    The subject looks like he is in his 60's or possibly 70, likely born in the 1780's or 90's.

    I refer to him as Ebeneezer - he could have played Scrooge in "A Christmas Carol" - which was coincidentally, written in 1843. Perhaps Dickens fashioned the character after this gentleman...?

    Randy, if you find such a site please let us know. I have a interest in pre 1846 ninth plate images usually but not always British. there is the http://britishphotohistory.ning.com/ site not dedicated to early 19th century images but they are a frequent topic.

    1/9th plate daguerreotype, young lady probably in her teens - likely from circa 1860.



    My recent discovery on this one is...

    ...zooming into her eyes you can make out the square'ish silhouette reflection of the camera.

    Re: Found Photographs

    My neighbor found this photo on the floor of an old homestead that he bought last month. It looks to me to be a collodion print maybe from the early 1900s. I think they're calvary. Does anyone have any ideas about the photo? There's an insanely amount of horses tied to both sides of a high line.
