This studio was probably the most successful photography studio in Calgary in the 30's up to the late 50's. He owned the entire block from what I understand. I remember when he retired and sold all his gear, a sad day.

This photograph was taken with an old Kodak folder circa 1940's using Ilford Delta 400 film and developed in Ilford DDX. Scanned with Epson 750 Pro, minimal PS'ing.

Excellent capture, Eric! I feel like I just stepped back in history.

All the funky crud around the edges of the image is from the camera. Figured I would just leave it in rather than crop it out.

Thanks for commenting. Seems your one of the few who are making an effort these days.

I think the funky stuff just adds to the authenticity.

>...Seems your one of the few....
Yeah. It gets lonely in here at times!

It all suits the image perfectly, although it does feel a tiny bit crooked to me? Not sure if it's just the lines throwing me off or it actually is?

I know this is an old thread, but I recently jumped back into LC after a 3 year hiatus.

Holy crap I love this! GREAT capture, I may be partial though as I love old signs/buildings. And to me, the imperfections mentioned above just add character to the photo. Nice!
