Hello! Thank you for the biographical information on my great, great, great grandfather, Jacob Katzman. What do you recommend as next steps on trying to track down any of his photography?

Don't you take any criticism on board. The present set up casts no credit on this organisation or myself.

It may be that somewhere on this site you have left some helpful instructions.If so I can't see it.

My telephone number is 020 8908 5124.

Regards

Jack Gordon

I am upset by the effects of my tiny pictures on my four entries .

Should I withdraw them as a whole and start again?

If so how do cancel anything of my submissions?

Regards,

Jack Leonard Gordon

The International Directory of Photo Historians has settled in a new home with hopes of stability in location, format, and function. The change coincides with the retirement from teaching of William Allen. At http://classyarts.com/photohistorians/photohistorians.php one may search the directory, add and edit one's entry, and communicate with other historians. The new directory protects the privacy of contact information (including email addresses) for participants. I hope that you and your colleagues will share this information.

Dear Michael,

First, let me thank you for the BPH site, it has proven to be an invaluable resource for an American collector of British Photographs, and I have "met" many experienced and generous experts here.

I am however, a bit alarmed, do the "major changes" mentioned in your weekly update indicate that the site will soon be subscription based?  That is certainly the impression I got. It would be such a shame after Luminous Lint changed into a monetized site, rather than an open and free exchange of ideas and knowledge.

Respectfully,

David McGreevy

Many thanks Michael - I'm delighted to have access to such a great site and resource. Is the Giles Duley talk open to the public? I'd love to come along if so. I am now Professor at the School of Journalism at Cardiff University. Until his recent retirement Daniel Meadows led our work on documentary photography - I'm looking for ways to continue to keep the School actively engaged...Best, Richard

Dear Mr. Pritchard,

I am looking for information about the beginings of Automat Photography. In particular about the first who was take a British Patent E.J. Ball 16,136. Nov. 23, 1887: Automatic coin-freed apparatus.(“Patents for Inventions vol. II, Abridgments of Specifications, class 98, Photography Great Britain Patent Office, Reprint Edition 1979 Arno Press, A New York Times Company”).

This is all the information that I have about this inventor. I have also a patent from 1900  of the United States and that I believe is attached to the same inventor US657505%5B1%5D.pdf

Do you know more information about this inventor.

Thank you very much.

Thanks for the comment on the Turner post, Michael - I've amended it accordingly.

Hi Michael,

It was lovely to catch up briefly in May. Sorry it was all so rushed.

You are doing a great job here ... and elsewhere! Well done! Keep it up

Hallo Michael, Thanks for the regular Newsletter.  Is there any way of recalling earlier versions? A recent issue had a review of the Princeton University book by Roger Taylor on Lewis Carroll and I would be interested in reading it again.  Thanks.
