Tiny Pictures 1



I run across these small strips of photos, from time to time.  At first, I thought they must have come from some sort of photo booth, which didn't really make any sense.  It's true that camera manufacturers were making self developing systems in the late 19th century,  but they were very expensive, very unreliable, and very rare.  I latter found out that camera makers offered film holders with a movable slide.  Take one photo on a glass plate, move the slide and take another image, then process and contact.  And, of course, there were cameras made with multiple lenses that could make multiple exposures at the same time.  This isn't one of those.  If it was, both exposures would be the same.
