These contact prints were made by me when I realized the odd size and frame ratio.
I asked for a set at that point and the old woman agreed.
She then told me as I started to look at the images, a family member had been in San Francisco a few weeks after the 1906 earthquake.
SHE WANTED TO SEE WHAT THE PHOTOS LOOKED LIKE SHE HAD NEVER SEEN THEM.
That was in 1994-96. I made 2 sets of CONTACT PRINTS. One for her and one for me.
I never heard from her again, or talked to any PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER who knew of this frame ratio negative size.
