A stock broker more than forty years went to work early in the morning, somewhere around 5:00. His office took the top two floors of a high-rise building in the city center.

Henry Fox Talbot

Over 100 years ago, Henry Fox Talbot invented the film negative. We try to rediscover the life of this inventor.

Sometime in October 1833, while enjoying his honeymoon on the shores of Italy’s Lake Como, William Henry Fox Talbot struggled to sketch the beauty of the landscape he saw, using the camera lucida. “I found that the faithless pencil only left traces on the paper, melancholy to behold,” he wrote describing the moment in his famous publication Pencil of Nature in 1844.

Recollection of Another Failure

The incident made Talbot recall another failure he had with a different drawing instrument,

Hell over Hamburg

She was a sight to behold. Although I did not fly this particular B-17 Flying Fortress, I did pilot one of her many sister ships. I stood and viewed her in the ‘house of Eagles’, the US Air Force Museum (today the National Museum of the US Air Force) in Dayton, Ohio. The mere sight of this aircraft opened up my memory gates, and I was flooded with over 40 years of sounds, sights and smells rushing back to me.

I remembered so clearly how, once the last hatch was closed and the order to start engines was given, every
