Historical Prints For Purchase
Experience the rich history of San Francisco for yourself through our unique Historical Print Catalogue. These images were shot on large format black & white negatives from the late 19th to early 20th centuries. Subject matter ranges from cityscapes to harbor boats & yachts, old time bootleggers and other unique moments in San Francisco’s history.
Images can be printed either as traditional silver prints or as archival inkjet prints. Our silver gelatin prints are made in the darkroom from the original negatives using fiber paper and are spotted by hand. Our inkjet prints are made from drum scans of the negatives, which are then digitally retouched & restored in Photoshop; files are output using archival inks onto the paper of your choice. Silver gelatin prints can be sepia or selenium toned for an additional 20% charge, while digital inkjet prints can be output with a sepia tone at no additional charge.
