British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

It's worth noting that today is the 210th anniversary of WHF Talbot's birth. We're celebrating in Lacock tonight.

It's also the 175th anniversary of the Latticed Window negative. We'll be celebrating that later in the year.

I'll raise a glass, but my cellar is empty of Chateau Talbot, alas! Not everyone knows that the family name derives from a breed of dog: the TALBOT was (it's now extinct) a Norman breed of large hunting dog with a pure white coat. The family came over in the train of William of Normandy ("the Conqueror"). Cheers.
