Plate 3.  “Dreads.”  A full-plate studio ambrotype on black glass.  A tender collodion has partially lifted from the edges of the plate during processing.  Subbing the plate edge with albumen helps adhere such films to the glass.  The albumen is visible as a thin light deposit along the edges of the plate.
