    TEST IMAGE OF BUFFALO FROM L.A. HUFFMAN'S STUDIO. Prior to printing final copies of his images, Huffman was known to produce several test prints, to get an idea of what they'd look like in their final form. This is one such test image, depicting about a dozen buffalo as they graze on a wide open plain. The photograph has a distinct blue tint, most likely the result of hasty washing away of chemicals prior to drying. The 5" x 3" photo is untitled, and is affixed to a random scrap of cardboard with one uneven edge (approximately 7" x 3¾"). Penciled on verso: "1880 Northern Montana." Despite the fact that this is not a finished photograph, it is still extremely handsome and in perfect condition. An excellent and affordable addition to your Huffman collection!
