To Stem Their Demise
Inside the front cover is this verbiage: "This is a silver gelatin, optical print of a camara minutera paper negative, prepared in the same manner as the traditional street portraitists of old, by photographer Joe Van Cleave."
Post-Script: During today's extended printing session I used a grade 2 contrast filter over the lens, which resulted in smoother tones in the prints. This will probably be my default contrast setting going forward.
