Here’s a photo I bought of an early car accident, circa 1905. I’ve done some modest restoration work on the image – there was some severe damage to the water under the bridge. It was a quick and dirty repair job, so it should be easy to spot, but I wanted to clean it up to make the image more readable and remove the distraction.
One thought on “Car Wreck ca. 1905”
My name is Kaitlan and I work with a filmmaker based in Southern California. We are currently working on a short horror film for YouTube that features a old (pre-1915) car wreck as part of it’s storyline (never shown, but implied). I came across the photo from your blog during a search for reference images and we wanted to know if we could use the photo as the beginning image in our film to help set the audience up a little. I know that this is an odd ask, but this photo works perfectly for what we need. Is this something you’d be open to? Getting a high resolution version of the photo itself, would be the ticket. Let me know what you think. You can reach me at this email: email@example.com
Thanks for your time and consideration.
