Date note: While the date provided by Rollie McKenna for a similar image is circa 1905, it may be closer to 1912 if the film is cellulose nitrate (which it probably is). According to the Image Permanence Institute, Kodak did not start manufacturing 5x7"nitrate sheet film until 1912. From "Photographic Negatives: Nature and Evolution of Processes"
