Doppelgängers and Spectres

I bid on some nondescript quarter plate glass negatives on Ebay and had a sneaking suspicion they were trick double exposure photography….. or three sets of twins! Either way it was win win if my gamble paid off.

What a bit of luck!

They aren’t quite as good as the ones we have in the Photographic Collection here at the John Rylands Library titled “Doppelgängers and Spectres” but they are very similar.

They have just arrived so here they are digitised.

Trick2

This ones not quite so successful and doesn’t join so well.

Trick3

Does anyone know if this was an adaptation to the front of the lens or a mask to the plate holder?

Either way a great bit of fun.
