Caption: John Franklin-Adams (1843-1912), British astronomer. Franklin-Adams was an amateur astronomer who, having built a private observatory in Scotland, used the wet-collodion photographic technique to create images of star distribution across the whole sky. He began his career as a banker, and later ran a business. It was only in his late forties that he pursued his childhood interest in astronomy, combining it with his other hobby, photography, in order to chart the heavens.
