  1. Barbara says:

    Thank you for sharing this photo. I’m wondering if someone has attempted to correct the photo for perspective effects, or if Myron Wood was using a lens that over-corrected for perspective effect. With careful measurements onscreen, the top of the building is slightly wider than the base in this image–NOT what you’d expect from a street-level photograph.

  2. Barbara says:

    Or perhaps the enlarger was not perfectly perpendicular to the photographic paper?
