These vintage photos are action shots taken of moving sailboats . . . photographed from the rolling deck of another boat . . . with camera gear built in the late 1800's! Even with that they are, for the most part, quite good.
You can get an idea of the type of cameras used by viewing the images in our Vintage Cameras gallery . . .
View the product with the excellent high-resolution preview to make sure the traits of vintage photographs appeal to you. These characteristics become more apparent when enlarged, but are much like the worn edges of the Velveteen Rabbit . . . much loved!
PLEASE NOTE . . . Most of the photographs in the historic image galleries were taken over 100 years ago. The equipment and photo techniques were not perfected and the glass plates, negatives and photos were often stored without great care and as such exhibit flaws and imperfect focus. If the technical aspect is more important to you than the historic or artistic please check the full resolution preview carefully before purchasing a print. Take into account that the larger the print size the more exaggerated the 'flaws' will appear. **********
