When I first came into possession of the 200 negatives that comprise the Capewell Glass Negative Collection, I knew next to nothing about them or who the people were in the photographs. As time went on, I assembled evidence sometimes haphazardly and had a lot of help from the readers of these posts who have been very generous with information. Sadly, this is one of those photos of which I know nothing.
These people may be relatives of Westville, New Jersey’s John B. Capewell or possibly neighbors. It was part of the collection pictured above, and I have little doubt that Capewell shot it. It maybe shot in Westville. I don’t know. Hopefully somebody out there recognizes one of the folks here as a relative.
As with all of the photographs in theÂ Capewell Collection Glass Negative Collection,Â I placed this 5â€³ x 7â€³ glass negative on a lightbox and shot it with a digital camera locked down on a tripod. TheÂ â€œprocessingâ€Â was done digitally on a Mac usingÂ Adobe Photoshop.
