Caption: Morlaix viaduct, France. Early photograph, dating from around 1880, of the viaduct and main square in the town of Morlaix, France. This bridge, completed 1863, combined a rail level (upper) and a road level (lower). Constructed from masonry (stone and brick), it is 62 metres tall here at its highest point, 292 metres long, and has 14 arches. Here, steam locomotives were used; today, the railway is electrified. The photographic printing technique used here was halftone printing, with the resulting print known as a halftone. The halftone printing technique became successful in the early 1880s, and this is one of the first such prints.
