This detail shows the printing room of the Anderson Studio. On the left are windows lined with printing frames. A printing frame holds the negative tightly against a piece of light sensitive photographic paper. The frame is placed in the sun for a set amount of time and a positive image of the negative develops on the paper. This is called printing-out-paper. On the counters in the room are stacks of printing frames waiting to be exposed.
