L A Huffman Photos-Enlarged Prints
Miles City Flood-1881
  Enlarged print: an original photograph produced by projecting light through a negative (by means of an enlarger) onto photosensitive paper. The resulting image is larger than the negative and can lose clarity in the process. Enlarging was uncommon until the advent of developing-out paper which started to replace printing-out paper in the early 1890's. To our knowledge, Huffman produced no enlarged prints until after 1900 and we know he used printing-out paper for at least some of his work until 1905 - 06. By the 1920's, virtually all of his effort was spent producing enlarged photos, many of them beautifully hand-colored.
