Red light district
"When he died, 89 glass-plate negatives were found in his desk showing prostitutes taken in around 1912 in ‘Storyville‘ the red light district of New Orleans".
...The 89 glass-plate are in different stages of corrosion, deterioration of decay.
in my opinion the best method to print the glass-plate of E.J.BELLOCQ with ARISTO PAPER.
The aristo paper was evident in the image of the type that is printable view of the direct action of sunlight, thanks of gold chloride, acquired intense shades of brown and had to be immersed in a fixing bath to assign colors to particular copy.
The aristo paper's had a remarkable,replacing almost completely than albumun,but in 1920 fell into disuse in turn.
