    Those appear to be real, actual horse in the photos, with real,actual mounted riders and real, actual race fans. And the frames appear to be real, actual frames. But as to the photos inside the frames being "something" as opposed to "something else"...what can we say about that?

    All photos are printed from negatives, and there's no difference between the 1st and then 1000th print.

    The only way to prove it was printed by the original photographer is via signature and other forms of authentication.

    The only thing "original" in photography is the negative.

    Not always true. Someone could have scanned it and reprint too.

    What they smell like isn't really a factor in determining if they are the only prints out there...

    And even if they are as old as they smell (lol), that still doesn't really mean anything. They say 1957 on the back of them. They probably were actually taken and/or printed in 1957, but that's all you can tell from that.

    I would be surprised if they were the only copies in print.

    I don't really see any way for you to find out. If they were numbered, you would know for sure that there were more copies (and how many). But I don't see any way you could possibly prove or find out that there were no other prints made...

    They most likely really are from 1957, or at least very close to that.


    ...No idea what they would be worth, or where you could find out, or where to sell them.

    The track they were taken at might be interested in having them, but other than that - I don't have any idea.

    If you bought them at a yard sale, I wouldn't expect them to be worth a whole lot. I guess you could get lucky though... Don't get your hopes up. :lol:
