Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Below is a nice example of a card by the professional Newbury Photographer E T Brooks. It was probably one of a short series of cards produced for sale to tourists. I would imagine it dates from the 1870s. This card shows the surprisingly little changed scene of the canal swing bridge in West Mills. If you view in 3D there are a charming row of very small children arrayed across the bridge.
Do you have any stereo cards of Newbury? If so I would love to hear from you and see the cards. Both Professional and Amateur images are of interest. Thank you!
