When visiting the Fox Talbot Museum in Lacock Abbey, England, I took a few pics of the famous southern gallery latticed window, which was the subject of the first paper negatives by Talbot.
The latticed window of Lacock Abbey; views from outside and inside.
One of Talbot’s “mousetrap” cameras that were used to photograph the window.
This is probably the first known negative of the latticed window…
…although this one, from 1835, may be the most well-known in the history of photography.
