Seeing Double

(Above) Victorian photograph and time-produced double. Click image for larger view.

SOMETIMES ACCIDENTS, QUIRKS OF CHEMISTRY, time and pressure can produce wonderful, unexpected results—as in this extra ghost-like photographic image produced over time by 75 to 100 years of being closed. This fits my collecting focus perfectly. An unexpected beauty!

I havea a number of old books that have this effect and I love it too. I tend to like the ghosted image better than the original!
