Biography/History

Due to lack of information about the origin of these glass plate negatives, little is known about their history. Each negative has an original identification number, handwritten name and each is a formal portrait. Because of these details, it is believed that these negatives were taken in a portrait studio ca. 1880's; coinciding with the popularity of the cabinet card format.
