Image Gallery: Photographic album: Sea life
These prints are from negatives created c1880. Many of the photographs are by Henry Barnes Snr.
The Trust Minutes from March 6,1879 record that the Curator was directed to obtain 'scrap books' in which to mount the photographs taken at the Museum, 'the photos to be scientifically arranged.' It is assumed that this album of fish, sponges and other sea life, along with albums depicting fossils and subjects from palaeontology and ethnography, is the result of that 1879 directive. Photo album AMS421/1.
