L A Huffman Photos-Contact Print


  Contact print: an original photograph produced by placing a negative in direct contact with photosensitive paper and exposing it to light.  The result is an image of the highest possible  clarity, the same size as the negative.  Contact prints were used for a wide variety of formats, including carte de vista, stereo, cabinet cards and larger mounted photographs. Huffman used all of these formats and, until about 1900, most were contact prints.
