Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

To pay tribute to Daguerre's 224th birth anniversary today (18th November 1787), the search giant Google celebrates the inventor of the world's first commercially successful photographic process with another patented Google Doodle.
The Doodle depicted what appeared to be a photograph of a family, with five of the letters in "Google" replacing the heads, and the "l" depicted as a lamp.

Hovering the mouse or pointer over the Doodle reveals the reason for the photograph-themed drawing: Louis Daguerre's 224th birth anniversary. As in the past, visitors who see the Doodle on Google's home page ( and click on it are taken to a search results page for Daguerre.
