Cabinet Card Finds

I picked up a handful of cabinet cards at a fleamarket the other day. I also have a few I bought in Berlin a couple of years ago. The market is actually flooded with them, since the east opened up, but unfortunately the sellers want to make a fortune, so they price them high... so high the items don't sell. The problem is that the photographs offered at outdoor markets are subjected to weather and handling, so they deteriorate quickly. I'd love to alter originals, but at the prices I had to pay, I can't afford to, so I'll make some colour photocopies and use those instead. Now... if only colour copies weren't so ridiculously expensive in Rendsburg. (No copy shops here, either, folks.)
