This frame was made as a gift and features a photograph of Havana Harbor in 1904. FYI – I was able to find the hi-res file for this image on the Library of Congress’ online digital archive. If you’re ever in search of interesting vintage photographs, the LOC and the National Archives have thousands of neat photographs online and available for download.
The frame is made of Honduran mahogany and features a checkerboard inlay of ash and walnut. For the finish, I sealed it with several coats of clear shellac and paste wax.
Here are two great links for vintage photos:
