Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The Sapper book is going well and getting a lot of press. BBC, Telegraph, Hereford and Daily Mail so far. This should be of interest to both historians, railway buffs and photographers. The pictures were taken on a Kodak box Brownie no 2 likely to have been on 101 or 106 size film giving negatives of 3 1/4 inch square; an unusual size as most images were rectangular. Hubert Ottaway seems to have had a good eye and technique as most of the images were well exposed and reasonably sharp; some achievement with 1/30 sec at f 14.
You can obtain the book from me at email@example.com and it can be paid for via Paypal.
Will be interested to hear your comments.
