Glass plate negatives

  • Earlier this year, old photos from Luzerne County popped up in historical and community groups on Facebook. Folds in fabric, smile lines and the textures of the clothing are crisp. Some houses and landmarks are familiar, but styles outdated. There are no cars. No modern technology. The county is dirt roads on a rural landscape. Curious about the time and the photographer, WVIA News journeyed to the past. Local historians were already miles ahead of us.
