The Corso, Catania, Sicily, Italy, 1846.

The Corso, Catania, Sicily, Italy, 1846. Calotype by Reverend George Wilson Bridges (1788-1868). Bridges went to Sicily in 1846 to take photographs with the intention of selling them to tourists; photography was still unknown in Sicily at this time. He took up photography after meeting William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-1877) in 1845. Bridges travelled the world between 1846 and 1852 moving from Sicily to Greece, Egypt and the Holy Land. He returned from his travels with around 1700 photographs.
