Negatives Ad Campaign for Akro Agate Marbles

Recommended Posts

Here is the cardboard cutout made from the two pieces in the negative. See the cuts in the back piece where the boxes of marbles would slide into? Would love to know the history of this negative? He said he found it with a camera? Really cool.

What a fantastic piece of marble history and camera history! An 8x10 negative is huge.

I love that color cardboard cut out posted above, way cool!

I inverted the first negative in Photoshop, and it looks like it is a black and white / newspaper photo as it came out very blue. Then I also converted it to B&W, it looks fantastic.

I'm not sure if I should post it or not, would hate to upset people.

Notice the boy in the negative below is not the same as the final cardboard cutout. The rest of it is the same. Maybe some test cutouts before the final product. What ever happened to these?

Assuming the realistic looking boy is a later version, that's not the only time that they had essentially the same graphics, but updated the style.
