Title: Train wreck, Astor, Kansas, 1906
Seller ID: trainwreck
6 negatives from the early days of film photography, probably 1906, showing various views of a train wreck in Astor, Kansas, taken by an unknown photographer. The negatives measure about 3.5 inches square. As far as I know, no prints exist, and I don't intend to make any. The caption information here comes from a packet holding about 100 similar negatives showing various scenes the South and Midwest U.S. The photographer was thoughtful enough to write down some details of his work, which created an excellent historical legacy for us 21st-century collectors.
