    I think the first is a "heliograph", since it's basically a contact print of a drawing exposed by the sun. The second is a "photograph" as we know it.

    I see that the photo was taken in France.

    My wife and I visited the Museum of the Moving Image in London a few years ago. It was interesting to see that the early movie work was done in France, not Hollywood. If fact, the early westerns were filmed in Fort Lee, NJ.

    I'm sure if the museum's name is correct, but it is well known.

    They just showed the picture on TV news. It looks pretty good for being that old. It's a photo of some buildings with alot of grainy noise but still very visible. It's amazing.

    I'm pretty sure I have a picture of it in one of my books. I'm not sure how a scan of that would be for you, but I'm willing to find the picture and scan it if you want But probably not good enough, huh? Very interesting post.
