We recently acquired a number of glass plate negatives dating back to 1890!
See the Warbleton example above these will be making their way into the shop over the coming weeks. Some do need a bit of TLC before they will be ready.
When scanned there can be a tremendous amount of detail in some of these so we keep are resolution high on all scans so that we keep as much information as possible then the only limit is from the original media.
Most of the images are available as a download from our store, many of which would make superb prints when mounted and framed. We like to do two versions a black and white and a sepia so you can use either. In some instances we will have the original scan without any retouching but mostly we take out distracting faults and marks and bring out as much detail in the highlights and shadows as possible.
You can use your download for any non commercial use or commercial uses that do not compete directly with us. i.e You can use in your advertising or have prints within your business premises but not sell those prints in any form. If the image is to be used in a publication for resell you can acquire a licence from the store for that. Use in blogs, printed news letters and free publications is allowed without licensing.
