Visibility: Spotty

via shorpy

“Washington, D.C., circa 1911. ‘Flights and test of Rex Smith biplane flown by Antony Jannus. The plane with Rufus R. Bermann, wireless operator, and Fred Aubert.’ Whose somewhat pixilated appearance can be attributed to mold on the emulsion. Harris & Ewing Collection glass negative.”

View full size here. I love the almost surreal effect that the mold has created — it reminds me of early transporting in Start Trek.
