    Yes, today is the anniversary of France's gift f photography to the world. It is also when Daguerre first ggave the details of his process which was very different fromTalbot's who furnished the details of his process months earlier.

    If you have an interest in the history of photography, I have a short introduction to its origins on my website: http://spiritsofsilver.com/galleries/salt_print_history

    Photography has a rich legacy which will prove rewarding to those who seek it out.
