A Newsie Girl from Australia Glass Negative

This is one of a group of images I bought from Australia years ago. She is poking her head through a newspaper. This was a fashion trend for photography for probably a few years and I always thought it might be a cool thing to collect. The images are rarely found but this one is a glass negative and with such great details you can read the news.
SPeaking of news it seems more and more that the newspaper is on the way out as is everything that means sitting away from the computer and relaxing with a cup of tea or coffee and just perusing to see what is going on in the world and in the town. I am certain that the school of journalism where I got my degree has been revamped to accomodate the internet publishing world. It cannot be a good thing. As far as I am concerned there should always be a newspaper.. Now anything to do with a newspaper will be highly collectable so keep an eye out for this type of photo, its usually small.

Hi Marianne, Are you going to make a print of this for your store? It is really wonderful. A piece of history that you rarely see. Thanks for sharing this. Sandra

Fascinating! My husband was in the newspaper biz for 20 years in Denver and got out just in time. And yes, you can link to me anytime! Mwah!
