This digital collection comprises selected materials from the following archival collection at David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library:
European tourist travel negatives between 1910-1915
Collection #RL.11712 | 36 items (1 digital collection)
This early 20th century collection of 34 nitrate sheet negatives features black-and-white travel images taken mainly in European cities. Subjects chiefly focus on popular tourist landmarks such as gardens, parks, bridges, buildings, and statuary. The travelers seem to be all women and at least one young child. Locations identified by library staff include Paris and Bruges, but other locations are unidentified, as are the photographer and subjects. It is assumed that some locations are in London or England, as one of two commercial photograph processing envelopes from the London firm Selfridge's accompanying the negatives is marked "English trip 1913." The negatives were sized 3 5/8 x 4 7/8 inches. The original negatives have been deaccessioned and only exist in digital form.
