« Pennies For Your Thoughts »

Sometimes you collect a photograph for the simple reason that it appeals to you. This girl knew her picture was being taken but the expression caught is one you see on any child's face from time to time, and you wonder what she or he is thinking. The portrait is small and it has wonderful tones, thanks to the skill of Ely of Duluth. About 1905. No identification.

You may notice that I often preserve the embossed borders of portrait cards when I can and when they suit the subject – that way you see it as it was when it was made.

How I wish that a computer monitor could reflect the true range of tone and fineness of some of these images - many early 20th c. prints are incredible in their platinum-like tones and almost complete lack of grain and paper texture to the naked eye, something you rarely see in modern prints (though my 4800 dpi, 8-color printer can come very close).
