Points of View at the British Library


The British Library in London has opened 'Points of View: Capturing the 19th Century in Photographs'. There's blurb and an 'online exhibition' but the Library's website is only an almost for me; they're trying, there's a blog for comments and all, but as usual I'd like to see some photos. Big photos. I don't want to have to click an image 4 times before it's larger than a postage stamp nor use 'zoomify', a feature that lets you scroll so that the image disappears entirely from your screen. Really though, this is all just an excuse for me to publish the Fox Talbot from my personal collection.

The Boulevard, Paris, 1843 by William Henry Fox Talbot
