PostSubject: Engravings and Photographs   Wed Jun 01, 2016 11:36 am

I mentioned in another thread how the Illustrated London News produced engraved images from photographs. This is an example from the ILN in June 1879 compared with an original photograph in my collection. The image is reversed because of the engraving process and is not a very good facial likeness. I wonder how many original photos like this are now lost?

I'm fairly convinced the image appears the right way round in The Graphic for 1872, the same page also has an engraving taken from a photograph of Bishopstowe. I spotted it the other night when I was searching for the Drury Lowe engraving in my storage boxes.

I always found The Graphic's engravers were slightly better than those of the Illustrated London News.

I haven't seen the 1872 Graphic but if it appears there it makes the photograph somewhat earlier than I thought. I agree about the Graphic engravers.
