Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Peter Domankiewicz has written a blog in which he suggests, and cites evidence, that William Friese-Greene was a supporter of women's rights. Friese-Greene was active when such issues were very topical and the subject of wide debate and in a lecture he gave to Bath Photographic Society in 1890 he stated: '‘Now the next subject I shall connect with this paper, or at least the movement or movements of photography, is the ladies. . .’.
