This is a photo from Buggy Wheel Antiques near Lake Park Minnesota. This is my favorite dress and veil so far. It is a simply elegant dress with a great veil. This bride has style..even her bouquet is different. To me her bouquet looks like it is the shape of a big bow.
The photographers name is on the outside of the folder. Martin J. Berget was in Warren Minnesota from 1905 to 1927. He was from Norway and he died in 1927. He sold his studio before his death..but apparently something went wrong as his son Norman took over the business in 1929. I think this photo was taken in the 1920’s.
In a nutshell the silvery sheen on some of the old photos:
Silver nitrate is part of the chemical dark room film process. Silver nitrate is not light sensitive but the other silvers used are. Silver Bromide, Silver Chloride and Silver Iodide are ground up and mixed with a gelatin. That gelatin covers a clear backing..or the film base.
I have never seen the dark room process..but I bet it is very interesting.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again:)
