Capturing a moment

We're delighted to have recently added some further images from the camera of celebrated Victorian photographer John Thomson to our website, courtesy of the collection of John Meek which we're now representing. The images are from Thomson's pioneering series documenting his travels in China in the early 1870s, and the influential documentary photography of Street Life in London (1877) on which he collaborated with journalist Adolphe Smith revealing the poverty of the men and women working on London's streets.

Aviation excellence

Supplementing our extensive collection of aviation images (including that of the Royal Aeronautical Society) comes a technically superb set of illustrations of mainly First and Second World War aircraft by Tim Brown. Depicted in profile, the single aeroplanes include the Avro Lancaster bomber of the Dambusters raid and the German Stuka, while there's also a terrific scene of the Red Baron's Fokker triplane in action in 1918.

This bijou collection can be viewed here.
