The negatives in this book were made by my great-great-grandfather George Carpenter Wheeler in 1901. I scanned both the negatives and the disintegrating envelopes they were stored in, and printed them via both ink & laserjet. The negatives and prints from the scans are bound in an articulating wire-edge style.
Comes in custom box of wood, bookcloth & book board.
The four glass plate negatives used in this book were images in the Boston in during autumn of 1901.
