gerard1948 from Somewhere on earth, Spain

The era when photography was a job, there was no software to make beautiful pictures. A beautiful presentation, it is always very interesting to find the methods of the past.
Have a good day.

Very cool -- aren't you glad that photography has come a long way since that time? :-) Although, I would love to work with one of those old cameras at some point. Would be a bit of fun doing it the REALLY old way. LOL

That would be interesting to see if I could make anything useful with those, but I'm kind of happy I don't have to try. :)

The disappearance of scenes like this has made for a boom of photographers who never
had to develop their own photos and work hard for the image.
