Two Victorian photochrome images of Bognor, circa 1895
Two Victorian photochrome images of Bognor, circa 1895. Entitled 'Bognor West Parade' and 'Rough sea at Bognor' and numbered 11301 and 11299 respectively with both displayed in their original frames. (2 items). 6.6 in (16.7 cm) x 9.4 in (23.8 cm). During the time when these photochromes were produced, colour photography was nonexistent. Photochrome printing was a lithographic printing technique invented by the Swiss chemist named Hans Jakob Schmid in the 1880's which turned black and white negatives into coloured images. The process involved taking a photograph in black and white and then forming detailed notes on the colours present within the scene with the final photographic stage involving the negatives being hand painted.
