Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Dr Lynn Pearson is researching the image shown here which has been attributed to W H F Talbot and does not appear to have been previously reproduced. The image shows Collins's Brewery in Water Lane, Richmond, probably 1840s.It is in the David Parry collection, part of the Brewery History Society collection, so it is just the cutting, stuck on a card with a few details about the brewery. Nothing to say where either the photo or the cutting came from. Parry has added a caption saying the photo is by Fox Talbot.
Is any reader about to confirm the attribution?
