This collection is astounding. The "guide" at the front door said that pictures were all developed from glass negatives that had been sitting on a Natchez patio in cardboard boxes. I can't imagine the patience and time it must have taken to hand develop each one but they shed light on the past in a way no film or book could do. As an added bonus, a man played the enormous pipe organ almost the entire time we toured the gallery. What a treat!
