A friend, who is also a cinema historian, sent me a photo of a person he is researching. This photo, reproduced below, shows him standing next to a camera he ran in the 1905 ish era.
One of the companies he worked in that era was for Dodd-Rogers in Cleveland, Ohio making halftones, but he is unsure of the pedigree of the camera or if this was taken there or in San Antonio, Texas.
I told him I would post the photo here for comments -- any comments?
Whatever you come up with, might help him ID the location and process being used in this photo.
Thanks in advance.
