I say amateur because they have their fingers in some of the photos. This is a collection of 17, 5 1/2'' x 3 1/2'', glass photo negatives. Each is tucked into its own labeled and numbered envelope that in turn fit into a fabricated box that is covered with cotton gauze. The envelopes and negatives are numbered and the envelope has a description of the image. Some of these were taken from pages in a book, as there is text on some of the photos. You know there's a great story behind these pieces. I love the fingers in the pictures, I can relate. The detail is incredible on these, down to the fingerprint on the page holder. One of the images is broken, with about 30% of the image missing. They're around a 100 years old.
