Over the summer I was in contact with a collector who owns a number of photographs taken by E. L. Moore. He has generously allowed me to organize, scan and post them. This post will be an ongoing index of those pictures.
That box contained about 150 black-and-white photos. There were a variety of sizes ranging from snapshot, up through 5x7 and 8x10. Nothing in colour. Mr. Moore was a professional photographer who did his own processing and printing, but had limited financial means, so I suspect colour photography was not a possibility even though he likely had the skill to make colour images. There were a lot of duplicates, and although I scanned everything, I won't be pedantic and post all the copies.
All the photos were in good physical condition for artifacts that ranged from 35 to 60 years old. There was some curling, fading and yellowing, but nothing that wasn't easy to correct in a scan. All the posts will be of 'corrected' scans as I think it's important to show the images as close as possible to how they may have looked when they were first created. I'm told there are some other photographs that are in poor physical condition, and I plan to see what can be done to restore them once I've had a look.
Without further ado, here's the list. Stay tuned for updates.
