Satisfy Your Curiosity for Vintage Photography
There’s always something unusual to see at the Burns Photo Archive Blog. I’m especially taken with the floating Victorian heads, and a little frightened by the colt with two legs.
Dr. Burns’ collection of vintage photographs (1840-1950) has been generally recognized as the most important private comprehensive collection of early photography. It has been showcased in numerous national media venues worldwide. Artists, researchers and historians access the one million+ photographs.
Thanks to Burns Archive Librarian, Sarah Simms, for the tip!
