Preservation

Do you have an interest in how to identify collodion and dry-plate images?  Ever wonder about the characteristic deterioration of 19th-century style images?

 If the answer is yes to those questions, then you will enjoy this article published in the Journal of the Maerican Institute of Conservation back in 1991.  The article gives details on a massive project to preserve 8000 wet plate glass negatives by Matthew Brady, William Henry Jackson, Timothy O’Sullivan, and others.
