Studio Portrait Photos of San Marcos People in Front of the Mirrors From the 1930s

Advances in camera lenses and the development of faster film speeds and better lighting meant studio photography became easier to achieve in the 1930s.


Glass plates were replaced by celluloid film in this period and the quality became better and better and the ISO increased progressively over the next 20 years.

These amazing photos from San Marcos Daily Record captured studio portraits of San Marcos people posing in front of the mirrors from the 1930s.
