Title Photographers' Vintage Treasures and the People Who Wore Them: Early Photography & Memoirs from Mendocino County (including Vintage Clothing Price Guide)
Author Antilla, Shelley
Physical Description 112 p., illus.
Published Date 2009
Summary Photographers' Vintage Treasures features historical works by nineteeth century photographers of Mendocino County such as A. O. Carpenter and Hazeltine as well as other itinerant and studio photographers. Through these historical photographs, the author describes collecting vintage clothing, letters and postcards and how to evaluate these as antiques.
The remaining photography, folk tales and general history of the Charles Wolff family, and their relatives, provides a photojournal back in time. It includes rare photographs and stories of two ghost towns. This is the completion of a historical book that author Shelley Antilla's mother had researched in the 1950's, based on original Mendocino County, CA photographs of her pioneer family. The book includes a vintage clothing price guide as well.
