Notes on Illustrations
Plate 1: Examples of 19th Century Cartes-de-Visite showing photographers’ insignia on the back of cartes.
Plate 2: Nine-lens Carte-de-Visite Camera of the 1870′s. This camera could produce either nine separate poses on one plate, or one composite picture of nine identical images.
Plate 3: Depicts a scene during the 1861-62 expedition by James Chapman and Thomas Baines referred to in the text. In the right foreground can be seen Chapman’s camera and the photographer working with his wet plate process. This is no doubt one of the earliest representations of a camera in paint.
Plate 4: By the end of the 19th century photography had reached the stage when the recording of events (rather than individuals) became commonplace for press purposes. The photograph was taken after the great dynamite explosion in the railyards at, Braamfontein, Johannesburg, in 1896. The camera shown on the left is a Thornton Pickard Stand Camera, first manufactured in 1890, with a focal plane shutter on the front of the lens.
The author wishes to acknowledge the help of the Johannesburg Public Library – particularly Miss L. Jaffe, and members of Miss Anna Smith’s staff who have assisted in locating many of the references in the almanacs and directories.
Cartes-de-visite. Photographs are available of a considerable number of the photographers who are listed, particularly as cartes-devisite, in the S.A. Photographic Foundation Museum and Library in Johannesburg.
