A glass menagerie: Rare negatives give glimpse into city's history
In 1898, you could purchase a Vive box camera for $5. More than 110 years later, no one at the Free Press knows how the old Vive glass negatives ended up in one of the drawers in our photo archives — decades untouched. But the power of a photograph in capturing a moment in time is undeniable when the negatives have been scanned and viewed as positive images. — Wayne Glowacki, Winnipeg Free Press photojournalist
