Glass negatives 10 — more group photos

From a box of 4″x5″ glass negatives found in the museum collection, here’s some group photos from approximately 1894-1920 (probably towards the early part of that period, since glass negatives were rarely used that late).

The first one is curious, because it had a piece of paper glued on the back, with a hole in the shape of a star. Was this man someone’s sweetheart? We didn’t want to remove the paper, in order to keep the object as found. But there are more people in the photo, hidden by that piece of paper.

  1. Hey guys – by any chance to do you have any stills or old fil footage of children walking/people walking. We want to use them for Centennial Trail History Day.

    Ideally – if you have two or three still frames that we could gif to make it look like walking would be very cool…….
