Salted paper print,
general use: ca. 1840-ca. 1860
paper or salt prints are the earliest
photographic prints made on paper.
The image seems to be in the paper,
not resting on the surface. The fibers
are noticeable and seem to be part
of the image. The salt print usually
has a matte surface and is brown
or sepia color.
