Amazing Pictures of Old London (26 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       6 Jan 2011       17612       6

The archives of the Bishopsgate Institute contain photos of old London from 1883. These snaps are of such good quality that in the windows of some houses pieces of sliced bread can be seen and the old playbills can be read. The atmosphere in the photos makes me think of the Hound of the Baskervilles. It is like this that I imagined London while reading the story.

Taken with a camera with bellows. The lens of a suitable bellows camera can be raised for an optimum view, and tilted to compensate for perspective so that the verticals do not angle toward each other.
