EN Walkley was one of only about 7,000 photographers in the US before 1900. He made 554+ surviving pictures of his home life, camera club activities, storms, parades, landscapes, horse-drawn vehicles, and trains. He experimented with time exposures, artificial light, paper backgrounds, and working outdoors when cameras were simple, heavy and on tripods. There were no paved roads and the family owned a horse-drawn carriage. It cost about $10 in today’s money to take a single shot. I got his glass negatives for my 13th birthday and he was my great-grandfather. His pictures opened my eyes about the simplicity of life in the US before 1914.
