Object history note

Francis Bedford was an architect, as well as a draughtsman and lithographer. In 1854 he was commissioned by Queen Victoria to photograph objects in the royal collection, and later photographed Prince Albert’s native town of Coburg. He also captured previously unrecorded sites when accompanying the Prince of Wales on a tour of the Holy Land. But Bedford is best known for his numerous views of Great Britain; including views of Wales, Devon, Warwickshire and Stratford-upon-Avon, as well as a stereoscopic series, English Scenery.
