GLASS PLATES : Gallery #1

Glass plates 20 years ago, I bought a large lot of pictures on glass plates. At this period of time I was quite busy with my studies so I did not paid enough attention to it. It was only recently, when finishing to empty some cardboard boxes of our last move, that I finally rediscovered all that stuff and then... a true treasure !

A hundred of glass plates, covering the period of approximatively 1880 to 1910, was here, sleeping in my attic and I did not remember it.
Topics are quite exhaustive and in any formats. Picture of soldiers are numerous, young people, images of the daily life, countrysides, historical events such as Paris flooded, the July 14th celebration, etc...

Here is a too short subset of these great pictures. (See hereunder for the scanning process I used to capture this images).
