Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
This is a real puzzle. a 10 x 10 inch silver print of an early illustration of Mars. At the bottom, "H. Spencer Jones". He was the British Royal Astronomer from 1933-1955 at the Royal Observatory at Greenwich.
I have no Idea why his name would be printed below a clearly earlier illustration of Mars. My Idea is that because this is a square image, it may be a copy of a lantern slide, used in one of his lectures????
Any Guesses out there?
