    I read in the paper that a man whose father died recently found in his dads effects a studio portrait of Adolf Hitler by Hoffman Hitler's photographer, a picture that was previously unknown and unique,, the man has no idea where his his dad got it from, except he was in the Royal Navy in WW11, and was a P.O.W in Italy

    When I come across them, this never seems to be the case. I've seen stacks of the same reproduced image, each in its own protective sleeve labeled "Vintage Photo"

    While I'm not a collector of old prints, I did buy a carbon print by Thomas Annan, one of the scenes of Glasgow. When I started doing carbon, I had a hard time finding a real carbon print so I could actually see one in the flesh. I found one at a photo show and jumped in. It did keep me focused to be able to ultimately master the process. It's pretty cool in the sense that you can't see any aging of the print materials at all.

    I fancy myself as a portraitist and I have collected as many types of processes of portraits as I can. (no salt print yet). I thought one day I may do a book; 100 found portraits. Maybe.

    I added four more vintage prints to my collection this weekend. Of the four, I think the most interesting is the following one.



    Other three can be found here on my web site.

    Started with a couple tintypes, then got thematic with people and their dolls. I'm mixing them up with some of my own, but you can get a taste on my Flickr set. (Some are NSFW.)

    I think this is my favorite vintage one so far:

    That was my first impression. But not being a historian, I'm not sure. There was another photo in the box of the same proportions where the image was just as soft as the battleship image. It depicted a bombed out town that look very European.
