VERY STRANGE. This sixth plate ambrotype was prepared using the Cuttings patent where the image was made on the back of the cover glass. Balsam was spread on top of a second piece of glass and the two pieces were placed together and tightly sealed. The back is painted black. What is going on here? The men were photographed in profile to show of their packs, but judging by their expressions, one must ask . . . What was going down? The guy on the right looks like he?s threatening his companion. The ambro is amatuerish and with their movement, becomes quite the oddity.
