Developing and Printing Wallet
This cardboard wallet is
marked 'JEROME' on the inside, and holds a Jerome photo. The date is
printed on the back of the photo in the style normally used by Jerome,
using an ink stamp. The date appears to be some time in the 1940s
but it is not clear.
The wallet measures 6.4 ins x
The photograph inside measures
5 ins x 3 ins. i.e. slightly smaller than the 'normal postcard size'
of 5.25 ins x 3.25 ins used by Jerome in the 1920s and 1930s.
Please e-mail me if you know when Jerome use these wallets, and/or if
were they used by all of their studios.
