L A Huffman Photos-Mounted Contact Print
Branding c. 1885
  * Mounted contact prints: Mounted photos come in a variety of sizes. Some of his earliest are from "The Spring Roundup", a series of 40 roundup scenes taken in 1885. Image size is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, mounted on unmarked 4 1/2 x 5 1/4 buff mounts. Most will have a "Huffman" stamp on the back. Sometime in the mid 1880's he started using a camera that used a 6 x 8 negative.  This was used for most of his unequaled documentation of the open range cattle industry.  These are also found on unmarked buff mounts.  Most mounted contact prints were probably made before 1905 - 06.
