Another category of my ephemera collection contains photography. Comprised mostly of studio portraits, the majority of photos in my collection were picked-up at various flea markets and antique stores. Many of these photographs have some notations on the backs telling who the images are of; but there are many photographs in the collection that still remain a mystery as to who the person/people are.
With this series of photographer's proofs, there is no name given for the subject, but we do have a very specific time and place for when and where these photographs were taken. Amazingly, founded in 1937, Vantine's studio is still in business today doing business as Vantine Imaging.
