61 new photos in the archive. Glass plate
negatives: We discovered box of
collodion wet process
negatives by Ignác Šechtl from exhibition in České Budějovice
probably in 1881. Only the oldest negatives are made by this
difficult process and the negatives are very rare. Together with
negatives we already found 149 photographs made this way. The
new negatives are also unique by being the very first known
preserved photojournalist reportage found in our archive.
