British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Online: Cavendish Laboratories historical images

The second release of historic photographs of people, equipment and events, mostly from the early history of the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, up to about 1970, is now available on line. The combined PhotoArchive now contains 406 images, 367 in black and white and 39 in colour. The first release contained images of many famous pieces of equipment. 

In this second release, there are more images of experiments and equipment, but there are also letters and writings, more portraits of many of distinguished staff members and, in particular, many images of daily life in the Laboratory.
