EN Walkley was one of only about 7,500 photographers in the US before 1890. He made 500+ surviving pictures of his home life, camera club activities, storms, parades, landscapes, and vehicles. He experimented with time exposures, artificial light, paper backgrounds, and working outdoors when all cameras were simple, heavy and on tripods. 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 1914m or about one hundred years ago.
