    Wasn't sure where to put this so move at will. :)

    At the end of last year I picked up a book in the junk section of my local photgraphy shop. It's called "The Focal Encylopedia" and this one was printed in 1960. It only cost me £1!!! Bargain! :mrgreen:

    Flicking through it today I found this. Could interest some of you. I like 1870. :mrgreen:

    as much for teaching us how to think about photography as for their inventions. But alas that's a different story.

    This book is from a completely different age. So if you're interested in something let me know and I'll see if it says anything about it.
