Weird Structure

Here’s another photograph shot about 100 or more years ago by John B. Capewell of Westville, New Jersey. I have no idea as to the locale or what the structure is although it looks like the fellow in the shot was carrying a case and stopped for a drink.

Here’s a closer look.

It looks as if there is a hole or perhaps steps leading down. I wonder if it had something to do with the similarly incongruous structure in this negative.

As with all of the photographs in the Capewell Collection, I placed the 5″ x 7″ glass negative on a lightbox and shot them with a digital camera locked down on a tripod. The “processing” was done digitally on a Mac using Adobe Photoshop.

    I went out and bought a brand new abacus .

  11. Tina says:

    I got rid of it because you complained about it! Hope you kept your receipt. (BTW, I still have my abacus!)

  12. JT says:

    I wasn’t really complaining; I only had to take my shoes off a coupla times.
