Prints from old negatives

A cousin of mine is sorting through stuff handed down to him. He says:

"...When going through my mother's photos I found an envelope that contained a number of negatives, most of which are 3 5/8 x 2 3/8 but a few are larger (5 1/4 x 3)...I am especially interesting in seeing the prints from these negatives. How would I go about getting prints of these negatives? The photo store that we used to have is long gone."

These negatives would be from the 1920s.

He lives in Gaithersburg, MD. Can anyone offer a suggestion?

The larger size is basically a postcard size. It was intended to be a simple contact print. You could easily do this at home with a few trays, some chemicals and a dark room. No enlarger needed.
