    I think it was a setup photo as many are looking at the camera. Obviously LF as not too many smaller formats then and the quality of the image. People were used to staying still for photographs then due to the films being slow. I think it's a single shot in a bright day taken stopped down.

    Asa 25, broad daylight, f:8 @ 1/100 second. How is that "too good to be true"?

    Point taken, but change that to 1/50 a second haha, 1/100 was pretty advanced :-p haha and certainly more like f/22

    I have a shot like this on my old 1910-1920's folder and that sucker was at f/45 at 15 seconds but not broad daylight hehe... But I just mean there is a large DOF so it has to be more like 22 for a LF image.

    Either way I guess we have proven it is POSSIBLE this is a real image. Where did the OP get it?

    I'll concede it's possibly one single shot... But my gut still feels it may be a composite... Would like to learn more about this photographer's work.

    I've seen that photo somewhere, maybe Shorpy.

    But, say they used ASA 12 film and sunny 11 (more realistic at that time and latitude), that would still give f: 22 and 1/2~ sec. If you look, there is motion in that photo.

    By 1905, shutters like the Compound, Goerz Sector, B&L Pneumatic, etc. were well developed and all capable of giving speeds of 1/100 sec.or shorter. Focal plane shutters have been around for even longer, capable of speeds of 1/1000 and shorter.

    I agree with Bill... time may tell, or it may not, I could be a stickler and say "I won't believe it till I see the negative" haha

    It doesn't look like a composite to me, even in c1900 DOF and movement were not incompatible;

    This photograph IS your time machine. So many interesting details. No problem making a picture like this at 1/2 of a second, or 1 second. That's nothing when people are mostly just standing there. They look curious, here's this guy with a big camera up on what, a cart or wagon? The whole operation would be a bit unusual. Maybe they were directed maybe not. Anyway, it's all pretty cool.

    I was waiting for someone to point that out.
