British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Does anyone know what happened to the excellent PhotoLondon site? The URL now points to somewhere on the Museum of London's site. Is the information that was formerly available there now on another site somewhere?

http://www.photolondon.org.uk

The best source on London photographers 1841-1901, includes an extensive and detailed database of around 9000 London photographers (and allied trades) with plenty of biographical information.  No longer updated but remains useful and plenty of references to more sources.

Very frustrating. I will make some enquiries. It was an extremely useful resource. 

Yes it was a useful site ..we’re there cost implications fir Museum of London to host the site or lack of input to update..is it something the RPS can take on or would other London museums who might be able to host?

That would be a possibility and has been proposed. I'm still awaiting a response from the Museum of London.

Hi - I used this site all of the time.  Needed it several times already this week.  If there is anything I can do, e.g. write letter of support, please let me know.  If it is a matter of paying for the service, I'm happy to do that, but hope Mus. of London can reopen, or if not, transfer to another organization that will keep it up and running. --Paula Richardson Fleming
