Feeding the Chickens

One of John B. Capewell’s brothers had a farm, and I guess that this could be his farm, but I have no way of verifying it. In this glass negative which is in poorer condition than most of the shots in the collection, a young girl feeds the chickens.

Here is the entire negative which has a sizable “hole” in it:
As with all of the photographs in the Capewell Collection Glass Negative Collection, I placed this 5″ x 7″ glass negative on a lightbox and shot it with a digital camera locked down on a tripod. The “processing” was done digitally on a Mac using Adobe Photoshop.

    Thanks, Lynne. I’m really glad that people such as yourself are enjoying this series. Stick around because there are a lot more to come, and as we go along, new information surfaces from readers and interested parties.

    Do me a favor and spread the word about this series. The more people who see it, the more the picture of Capewell gets filled in. I’m hoping there are relatives and descendants out there seeing people they are related to for the first time!

    Love what you are doing at Willceau Illo. Keep it up Unfortnately, I am not huge on social media but when good stuff surfaces it needs to be credited. I posted this on my (small) fb page. I cant wait to see more! Thanks

    Oh Lynne, your FB page isn’t small – it’s the same size as everyone else’s! Thanks for posting this.
    BTW – sad to hear about Jerry Herdman – such a nice man.
