Reed & Barton Photographic Plates

About 20 years ago, we did a rescue of a large group of glass photographic plates for Reed & Barton silverplate catalogs dating from the late 1800's/early 1900's. The plates measure 11" x 7" and we estimate there to be about 350 of them. They have been sitting in our basement ever since as life took us to other pursuits. Now that we have more time, we pulled a sample of the plates out of storage to see what we had and what we wanted to do with them. Some are in better shape than others and some need to be cleaned up but we have no idea how this could or should be done. We are grappling with what to do with them. Would appreciate any suggestions.

Happy to report that the Reed & Barton Glass Photographic Plates have found a new home at the Attleboro Area Industrial Museum. Attleboro is not far from Reed & Barton's long term home in Taunton, Massachusetts. The Attleboro Area Industrial Museum is dedicated to exploring and educating about the industrial history of the Attleboro area. They are really nice folks and we encourage you to visit and support the museum.
