Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
I have recently acquired a glass plate negative by W E Debenham (Regent St London & Massingham House, Haverstock Hill).to add to my collection of Debenham photos The plate show the photographer and address details at the bottom.
I always thought these details were on the printed cards that photographers attached their photos to rather than on the negatives. Can someone tell me if I am wrong in my assumption or perhaps what I have is a photo of a photo?!
Would be greatful for any info you can give me, hope this isn't a silly question!
The negative is a copy of the cabinet card, and not the original negative of the portrait.
Not a silly question.
Thanks Tony, I did wonder if it was a photo of the photo. So may not be by W E Debenham but perhaps by another photographer. I will still keep in my Debenham collection.
