Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
the recent unprecedented floods in the Eastern side of Australia, have had a deviating effect of the Sandy Barrie historical photographic Collection and his research into early Photographers.. there was no warning, and the river just kept rising. until it entered my shed and house, destroying years of restoration work on negative collections and cameras etc. hampering my attempts to rescue what I could, just as the water started to enter my house, I fell in the slippery conditions an breaking my Toxic tail bone, something I repeated a week later... 50 years of collecting and some of the most historic negs and cameras from Queensland history now damaged beyond repair. I did manager to get my computer (androids of hard drives) to higher safety, but on plugging it back in after the clean up, it seems wet cables may have shorted the computers ending that also.
