Positive about a negative

Large glass plate negative c. 1900 showing military cadets? I'm tempted to make a print from this negative, but I suspect the positive will look a lot less interesting than the negative. Glass plate negatives bridged the 19th and 20th centuries, before the invention of film. I think they're really interesting both visually and historically just the way they are. And they're cheap and easy to find.
