This Slideshow displays the most complete catalog of Beatrice Tonnesen’s works available. Only a handful were reproduced from glass negatives (film did not exist). Many of the images were reproduced from original prints. Other images were restored from calendars and newspaper inserts. New images are being added to the catalog as new source material becomes available.
