1910's Tending to Pigeon House Original Glass Negative - 3 1/4" x 4 1/4"

Dennis Brearley was a Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist for a Boston newspaper when in 1978 he left the newspaper industry to open up a photo gallery on Boston's historic waterfront. Throughout the years he worked to enhance his collection by purchasing vintage glass plate negatives. In the ensuing years this collection grew to be one of the most extensive in private hands. The variety and quality of these images is truly remarkable. With today's modern technology these negatives can be used to create incredible oversized high-resolution prints in various mediums ranging from silver gelatin to platinum palladium. This particular negative represents the earliest holdings from the collection. The photographic images are spectacular and present America in a simpler time as people lived long ago!

A word about condition. Due to the age of these negatives many have peripheral damage to the glass or film layer. The images portrayed are shot in 300 dpi, have been cropped for what we believe to be the best presentation of the available images and have not been enhanced with Photo Shop or any other software. Please bid accordingly.
