The Legacy of Samuel Hannaford

A collection of black and white large format 4x5 film photography, chronicling the 19th century architecture of Samuel Hannaford. Over 300 buildings are know to have been designed and constructed under Hannaford, including Cincinnati's City Hall, Music Hall, and the Cincinnati Observatory in Hyde Park. Each photo was shot using 4x5 film, which was then processed and developed by hand in the darkroom. The negatives were then scanned in at full resolution for archiving, allowing for the creation of high resolution, large scale prints. A box was then constructed to house example prints
