Caption

Christchurch gate, Oxford. Christchurch, one of the colleges of Oxford University. This photograph appeared in 'The Pencil of Nature' (1844), a brief historical sketch of the invention of the art of photography. This photograph dates from before September 1844, and is by British pioneer of photography William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-1877). Calotypes used paper coated with silver iodide to capture photographic images. Salted paper prints were produced using paper coated with silver chloride. Both photographic processes were invented by Talbot.
