The Man Behind the Cameras
This is a fun story in the Boston Globe about a camera and photography collector. He's looking to sell his collection... so if you have $20 million on hand!
I've been checking under my couch cushions, can't remember where I put that extra cash!
Jack used to have folks over from time to time.... I just about passed out the first time I was there. Great guy.
"One of the painful things about our time is that those who feel certainty are stupid,
and those with any imagination and understanding are filled with doubt and indecision"

It would be pretty cool, just to see the catalog.
Great article. Thank you for showing it to us.
I was at Jack's house a couple of years ago where he hosted a meeting of the Photographic Historical Society. He has the whole house filled with stuff behind display cases like a museum. I heard that this was his second collection. He sold a larger collection a long time ago and then built this one up again. He also has a fine collection of Ambrotypes and Daguerreotypes.
I hope it will be sold to another museum so everyone can see it.

Suzanne, I get the Globe on Sunday and read that article too. I would love to see his collection in person.
Neat article, Suzanne. Thanks for posting the link.
I'll go halfsies with ya!
