FOUND PHOTOS: 4x5 Glass Plates



These photographs belong to Elizabeth Avedon/All Rights Reserved

I found a package of turn of the century 4x5 glass plates in a junk store. I gave them as a present to a photographer many years ago, who gave me prints made from the plates. I just found these three.

How cool is that? I love old photos.... I wonder about people's lives... how they were living... if they were happy. What a great find.

Lovely photos - each one tells a story. Early pioneers had fun...

Liz, I have one of a lady and her dog-it has been"framed" so the printed image is smaller and the strength of the photo is its entirety-she is standing on a big porch- I guess there is little hope to remove the frame. These are wonderful glad you got the pictures. pgt

Bruce, I saw those. In fact I looked through them for hours as I was mesmerized by the images from an earlier time. Thanks for posting the link.
