What: Victorian Photography Podcast With the invention of photography, who knew it would revolutionise culture and communication? Images of real life could be captured for prosperity and sent across the world. Portraits of royalty and other celebrities, far more accurate than paintings, allowed members of the public to feel that they were viewing these people in the flesh. In this episode, we are with guest Colin Webb, who helps making history more accessible and telling the stories that we as a culture may have forgotten, and he does this by adding colour to black and white photos. https://www.londonguidedwalks.co.uk/018-victorian-photography.php
