    I had to grab a shot of this one vendor's display at Alameda last weekend (don't worry, I always ask permission).

    These old photos and prints are just cool, even without knowing what they all are.

    The outdoor shots are great - but Especially the old cruise ship in the beautiful blue waters (with what process did they touch this up?)

    I asked how much, but it was out of my league.

      I can't tell about the process from looking at the images, but it's possible that they could have been hand painted with oil and pigment...it really depends when they were made.

      Anyway, I really like how the vendor displayed these images in frames (mixed with still life paintings), this collection would be interesting to see on a white gallery wall together.

      This Wiki page talks about some of the different processes.
