This is NOT my image. However, it's in the FSA file, so it has no copyright as far as the LoC can determine, and it belongs more or less to me as an citizen of the USA, so I am comfortable with the legalities of posting it here.

I occasionally troll the FSA file for good photographs, and post them on my blog. I ran across this one, having decided to see what Rothstein had shot.

Just *LOOK* at this thing! It's gorgeous.

If my comments lack flow, it's probably because I am ignoring someone I think is dumb.

What are those funny fence-like markings at the top and bottom of the picture?

It's some new process, Rob. They aren't using glass plates any more. The new stuff is flexible and comes in long strips with the emulsion already coated on it.
I think those holes at the top and bottom are probably intended to reduce weight in the parts that are outside the image area. Can't imagine any other use for them.
