Portraits from Ipswich at the turn of the 20th Century

Photographs by Edward Darling

In the winter of 2016, Bill Barton shared with me his collection of glass plate negatives taken by Edward Darling (1874 – 1962), one of the earliest Ipswich photographers. The glass plates have been stored away for decades, but I was able to develop the negatives into high-resolution black and white photos. Jeanne Langmaid Engel’s collection of Darling negatives were donated to the Ipswich Museum, processed by David Stone. Photos from that collection are included in this slideshow.
