Unidentified photographer [U.S.]: View Through a Doorway of a Home in Detroit, Michigan. Cyanotype, 4" x 5", 1899

This beautiful study is almost certainly the work of an amateur photographer. There is, however, nothing unprofessional about the composition or the use of available light. This photograph also provides a rare glimpse inside a middle-class home at the end of the nineteenth century.
