The Birth and Death of Spirit Photography

The Birth Of Spirit Photography

gm_10226501On this tour, we going to go back to 1861.  Here we see Mr. William Mumler working as a jewelry engraver in Boston.  He leaves his post for the day and goes home for dinner.  After dinner is over, he enters his make shift studio where he dabbles about with photography.  Playing with this new medium is something that he enjoys very much, but it is not something he can do to pay the bills, yet.
