Photo of Rehoused Glass Plate Negatives

Subject

Glass negatives
Photography -- Negatives

Description

Unless they are broken, glass plate negatives should be
stored vertically in a snug fitting box. They should not be able to shift or slide in the boxes. We have
lined our box with volara polyethylene foam (an archival quality non-abrasive foam) for a snugger, more
cushioned fit. Plates should be boxed with plates that are the same size. Smaller plates housed with
large plates will not fully support the surface area of the larger plates.
