Timepix - old photos, on maps

Every photo was taken somewhere! Maps can help you find where the photographer was when they took the picture; perhaps even inspiring you to take a new photo  'standing in their shoes'. 

1910s boy with fox

Studio portrait scanned from a glass negative by Henry Dunning of Usk, Monmouthshire.

This charming portrait of a young boy with a fox toy tucked underneath his arm is of an unknown child. The costume works pefectly with the painted woodland scene and has a fairytale quality to it.

The photograph can be dated by the fact the boy is wearing a machine knitted jumper typical of the more comfortable attire that children were by then being given to wear.
