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 5â€³ x 7â€³ glass negative on a lightbox and shot them with a digital camera locked down on a tripod. The â€œprocessingâ€ was done digitally on a Mac using Adobe Photoshop.
