Re: Bain's Camera

An 8x10 or 5x7 view camera using glass-plate negatives. This shot used an 8x10 glass plate - basically a windowpane coated with emulsion. At 80 square inches it has 80 times the area of a 35mm film frame.

Bain's Camera

Wonder what kind of camera this was. The photo is so sharp.

Brick floors

and flat shoes!

Fingerprint

Did anyone notice the fingerprint on the right side of the photograph?
