Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

The Royal Collection has put it's first photograph exhibition online. The 1987 exhibition, Crown and Camera, curated by Roger Taylor and Frances Dimond, and shown at the Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace, is now available online on the Royal Collection’s website. The exhibition presents a survey of the 19th century photographic material in the Royal Collection, from 1842 to 1910. It includes the earliest photograph in the collection – a daguerreotype of Prince Albert taken in Brighton in March 1842, two outdoor daguerreotypes of the 1848 Chartist meeting in Kennington and work by Fenton, Reijlander and others.
