(56-9-1 to 56-9-6)
Auction is for an original vintage Western Photography Guild Model/Pose card from the posing strap era. Original vintage prints by American photographer Don Whitman. (1916-1998) Set of 4x5 vintage photographs made on luster finish fiber base paper are mounted to an 11x14 piece of heavy card stock. The photo paper is probably Ansco Allura. A beautiful textured bromide portrait paper popular through out the 1950's and 1960's. This one of a kind card was kept on hand in the photographers studio. It identifies which photographs were in this set. It was also used for customers to make selections of prints to buy when they came to the studio. The photographs were originally mounted using rubber cement. The cement had gone dry over time and the prints were loose and starting to fall off the card. I have re-secured the prints as necessary using a high quality photo safe archival adhesive. The prints are now securely mounted, and cannot be removed from the card. A unique piece of physique photography history.
_PRINTS_= Really nice prints in very good condition
_CORNERS AND EDGES_= There is some wear to edges and corners mostly on the right hand side and the bottom. There are two small tears on the right side that extend about 1/8 inch into the side of the card, (upper right near the corner) Minimal fading and discoloration and clean.
_APPEARANCE=_ Overall a really nice card in good shape for it's age.
