English Heritage virtual tour

English Heritage have created a visually powerful virtual tour entitled 'Early Photographic Print Collection' using Historypin.

The tour includes some of the oldest photographic images in the English Heritage archives. These images were made from glass plate negatives (an early photographic technique) in the 19th and early 20th century.

Images were selected by English Heritage staff using various criteria including: the emotional response created by an image and the aesthetic & visually striking nature of an image.

Check out the other featured tours and collections on Historypin. If you haven't already done so, make sure you experience 'Time Travel in Sir John Logan Campbell's shoes' (go to the tours tab). This Auckland Libraries tour was curated using the rich heritage collections from around the region, to celebrate the 2012 Auckland Heritage Festival.
