    From T. S. Hill, of St. Catherines, Ontario.

    This photographer had a bit of skill to put the woman's portrait onto a scroll in this interesting, undated photo of an unknown woman.

      The photographers technique is found with some regularity at this time period.

      Most likely an 1880s- 90s image.

      Thank you, Scott.

      Scott is correct. Specifically, these were made with a product known as "Scroll Negatives" to create the scroll borders. They were popular in the later 1880s.

      Scrolls must have been popular in that time, as I have an early 1890s bottle with its embossing contained in a scroll.

      Thanks for the "scroll negatives" information-- thought you might have more familiarity with the photographic technique!

      Hi SpiritBear ... I just posted 1888 and 1896 advertisements for 'scroll' and 'border' negatives that show how photographers were able to make the type of image you show here. You can see it at: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/199374-scroll-and-border-negative-photographic?in=user

      Thank you very much, rniederman.
