Which way gound glass...newbie question

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Ok, I proudly, and oh so carefully, removed the ground glass on my just purchased Cambo 4x5. (I think its an SC? Only geared movement is focus, all other are friction.) Anyway, the glass cleaned up very nicely with some dish soap and warm water, making me feel even better about shrewd used camera purchase. Then I went to install the ground glass.....hmmm...which way was the frost facing? Toward me, or the lens?

Frosted side towards the lens. That's where the film plane will be, so that's where you want the image to form.
