A selection of images taken from the Benjamin Baker: Bridging the World Exhibition can be seen on line for those who are unable to visit the venue in person. The exhibition will be shown in London later in the year and I will forward relevant details as and when they become available.
In addition, in September there will be a symposium on Photography and Engineering organised by the Ordine degli Ingeneri di Padova and Venice University in the Autumn.
Details will follow as soon as I know more.

Benjamin Baker's activities took him far and wide. Not only to Egypt but also to the US when Fowler & Baker Ltd took over the work on the Hudson Tunnel and was also responsible for the design of the now defunct Manhattan Elevated Railway - see "Edison Clip
" and a second by the Mutascope Company"
