I’m very pleased to share that I will be giving a talk at Bexley Archaeological Group! The talk is called ‘Fine views can be taken: Photography and Global Travel in the Nineteenth Century’.
Listeners are cordially invited on a ‘virtual tour’, exploring the world through the eyes, photographs and writings of late nineteenth century Western globetrotters.
The talk takes place on 20 May 2021 at 8pm, virtually of course (via Zoom).
It’s free for members of Bexley Archaeological Group, £5 for non-members. Tickets can be booked here.
The cover photo on this blog post is Vincent Clarence Scott O’Connor’s ‘Shive Dagon: the Pilgrim’s Rest’ (1910), which is part of the collections at the Royal Geographical Society.
