Board of Agriculture: Glass Negative Collection

The complete Glass Negative Collection of the Board of Agriculture is currently located in our online Delaware Heritage Collection. The set consists of 2,017 images that were shot from 1922-1938. During this time period, many photographers were moving from glass negatives to film. However, their staff photographer, Roydon L. Hammond, needed the best quality photographs for his job as a seed analyst. He therefore continued to use glass negatives in his work. As signs of Spring begin to blossom, we are pleased to present this collection to you.
