Old Photographs & Ephemera

We just redid the display in our front window and it looks great ... so I thought I would share it with you. We are highlighting our collection of old photographs, as well as other ephemera. The 19th century Wollensak antique bellows 4x5 camera in the center is a great find.
Wollensak 4x5 Bellows Camera ($295)
Our collection of old photographs includes tintypes, cartes de visite (CDV), cabinet cards, portraits, family photos, professional portraits and news photos.

This frame is filled with old pages from books that were too beat up to save. Susan stapled them onto a bulletin board inside this old frame. The project is simple, but elegant.  The array of old papers makes a great backdrop for photos or prints and would look great as an accent wallpaper as well.
