Frederick Scott Archer and The Wet Collodion Process

If you click on the link at the right about Frederick Scott Archer you can read a fascinating story about a man who generously gave this ground breaking process free to the world. Maybe it is because I watched the opening ceremony of the Olympics but I was reminded of Tim Berners-Lee and his generosity.

If any BPH members happen to be in London, do drop by Kensal Green cemetery to visit his grave whereby a new plaque was unveiled by a group of artists known as The Collodion Collective, back in May 2010, in honour of him. You can read more about it in this BPH posting here.
