James Wallace Black was an early America photographer, inventor and pioneer of the craft. He is most well known for the nation's first aerial wet plate image taken above Boston in 1860 from a hot air balloon (how he pulled this off still mystifies me) that introduced the concept of aerial reconnaissance for the military.

In addition - he captured iconic imagery of John Brown on the very year of Harpers Ferry and Walt Whitman when he was working with a local typesetter for the first printing of "Leaves of Grass".

His early logo and design are amongst my favorites and a must for any photography buffs. 

We are committed to local production at NESB - so all of our shirts are designed & printed right down the road in Salem Massachusetts
