I have known many of these photographs for years, but I paid no attention to the photographer. This evening, I have been reading a book I found in my father’s library about William Downey, LONDON’S FIRST PHOTOGRAPHIC STUDIO-1855. I am fascinated. Downey was born in 1829, ten years before the invention of PHOTOGRAPHY. Look at these images! Amazing quality. William Downey was granted a ROYAL WARRANT.
HOW MANY OF THESE PORTRAITS CAN YOU IDENTIFY?
