SIZE: 7 & 1/2 by 7 inch negative
COLOR: Black & White
MATERIAL : Celluloid
ORIGIN: U.S.A.....the ad appears to be from "The Iowa Medical Journal"

SPECIAL NOTE: I scanned the negative and reversed colors for the display photo. The photo will come with the negative.
The negatives we are offering were acquired at an estate auction. They appear to be from newspaper archives. The text that accompanies the image is interesting and telling, but conclusions about the negatives themselves are difficult. This one reads in part "$500 Ford Runabout, 15 H.P. 4 cylinders, speed 40 miles per hour, shaft drive, luxurious body, weight 800 lbs. 28 inch wheels. These will be received in car load lots beginning the first week of June. Sears-Nattinger Automobile Co. 812-814 West Walnut Street, Des Moines, Iowa. "
