The Victorians - 1

Posted by Michael Fresh (Chester, United Kingdom) on 26 July 2011 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

In my archives I have a collection of coloured images from 1890 that appear to be photographs but in fact they are ink-based photolithographs. They are photographs that have been chemically treated in order to print with ink. The prints were then scanned to a digital image format.

I hope you enjoy these scenes as much as I do, it's a fascinating glimpse into life as it was for the Victorians.

My book entitled, Looe in Cornwall a photographic tour, is on sale now.
