wow
that's all I'm saying.
I love this kind of photography. How have you accuired such a collection?
I hope you have more, because this, so far, is so interesting. Do you know what type of process these all are? and if so could you post them?

I can tell you that this is a site that I will keep an eye on. Gret idea. We don't have enough historical photos in my opinion.

Thanks for comments.
Collecting, collecting, years and years, that's the only way to acquire a nice collection of photo's. When I started in the 1970's, photo's were still cheap. All published photo's are vintage and/or handprinted ones, from the original negatives on photopaper, mostly printed by the original photographer himself.
