Default A Definitive Answer, Wood Hulls Were Painted, Kinda

A while back there was some discussion as to whether or not wooden hulls were painted. After acanning several hundred of the Howard photos I can say that YES when Howard built a wooden hull it was painted.........only down to just below the expected waterline. The bottom and lower parts of the gunwales were not painted when the hull was launched.
Speaking of the Howard photos, does anyone have any idea why there would be over a hundred glass plate negatives taken in and around Lansing, Iowa? What was Howards connection to Lansing? From the calendar on the wall in one photo of a barber shop the year was 1914, why would there be a picture of a barber shop in Lansing Iowa in the Howard collection and not one in Jeffersonville?
