Print from a negative which was taken by a family member while visiting relatives in Yorkshire sometime between 1934 and 1938).


Unfortunately the negative has some damage to it, which has happened at some point in the last 85 years.

It is good to see prints produced by alternate techniques being sent in the Monthly Print Exchange.


I am not sure whether I prefer the straight print or the tea stained one. They are different and both both interesting.

Like Mike, nice to see some alternative processes, both are nice, but the original cyanater for me has the edge

Certainly a print which capyures the scene of a bygone age. I prefer this one to the blue one but that is just me.

I think I prefer this one to the blue one. When I saw it at first I thought 'Wow - there's a real vintage look and feel to this'...then I read the caption Smile
Always nice to bring an old negative back to life. Well done.

I really like this version as well, Ian. I haven't tried toning Cyanotypes, other than the intensification you can achieve with Hydrogen Peroxide. This, and the others you have shown have inspired me to have a go.

Thank you both for your comments, much appreciated.


Still trying to get to grips with this process, but it really does (for me) fill any urge for instant prints.


Is Cyanotype the original polaroid ?
