Q: It seems that there is a very narrow selection of images in VS. Why

A: Do you know?

This is a digital image made from a 4x6" glass negative. It depicts my grandparents residing in Buffalo, NY, with one of their daughters who did not survive childhood. He was an immigrant mechanical engineer, she a homemaker. Their attire appears from other images to be their "everyday work clothes".

I plan on writing an Essay or How-To story concerning finding and resurrecting this cache of images.
