    I just returned from a trip to the Tioga Pass area and caught an exhibit of several vintage albumin prints take with ULF glass negatives at the Yosemite Museum located next door to the Visitor Center in Yosemite Valley. A most delightful surprise! If you're in the area you might find it worth checking out.

    John, did it say how long the exhibit would last? I can't get to Yosemite until October.

    I once got to work with some of Muybridge's mammoth plates - fascinating (mind you, Muybridge himself is almost infinitely fascinating!)

    Sorry for not answering promptly, my 'puter crashed.

    Muybridge is there along with other well knowns. The exhibit runs through the summer, maybe longer----the docent said they change the exhibit yearly. The site Tim Atherton posted has better details than I can give.

    I gotta go 'puter shopping---adios!
