20130629-0033 Venice Grand Canal & Santa Maria della Salute 1955
6cm x 9cm Silver Gelatin Print

I couldn’t resist buying this great old photo album at my usual brocante shopping spot in Brussels last weekend. It is full of about 85 original silver gelatin prints measuring about 6cm x 9cm with the cool vintage deckled white borders. The photographer is unknown but possibly from Ghent Belgium? Here are just a few samples…
