trouvée: the pool

Inscribed: "In the pool. I had several good swims here. Water is light blue and very warm."

I found this cyanotype with a group of photographs taken in Idaho Springs (hot sulphur springs), most likely in the 1880s. The blue tone, typical of a cyanotype, adds a certain aura to this already strange photograph ~ I love it!

For a great collection of odd photographs like this see Accidental Mysteries.
