Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Take a look through a Canon's camera...

Hello, this Woodhorn Museum introducing our new Facebook page about Canon Roderick Charles MacLeod, an amateur photographer who lived in Northumberland at the turn of the 20th Century.

The MacLeod collection is housed within the Northumberland Archives at Woodhorn, and this facebook page is a new way of sharing our digitised photographic collections.

Several hundred of Canon MacLeod’s lantern slides were rescued and deposited in Northumberland Archives by George Brown of Mitford when the old vicarage was being demolished. Countless others have been lost, although some have turned up over the years in other collections. They provide a fascinating glimpse into a corner of rural Northumberland at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries.

This Facebook page will be updated throughout 2012/13 by Woodhorn Museum & Northumberland Archives. We will be posting on a different theme each month, as well as including the occasional 'wildcard' photo to keep you entertained.

If you would like to share relevant information about the photography, the MacLeod family & Mitford in general, please do so, we welcome your insights and opinions!
