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'. 

New photo album - Pearl family of Devon

Pearl15f, 1870s carte de visite by James Chenhall of Tavistock, Devon

This portrait of two children in summer dresses has something wrong about it. The pose of the younger girl suggests that she is unable to sit up by herself, although she does manages to rest her hand on her older sisters head. Normally sisters would be shown sat or stood by each other. Instead, the photographer has posed the older girl on a pile of cushions to allow her to rest her head in her sisters lap in an attitude of sisterly love and affection.
