Caption

Newhaven fisherboy, 1840s calotype. Calotypes, one of the earliest forms of photography, were introduced in 1841 and used paper coated with silver iodide. This calotype shows a fisherboy in the fishing village of Newhaven, Edinburgh, Scotland. It was taken by Scottish photographers David Octavius Hill (1802-1870) and Robert Adamson (1821-1848). The photograph is titled 'King Fisher' or 'His Faither's Breeks', referring to the fishing trousers he is wearing.
