The practical invention of photography is historically accepted as dating from January 1839 and Scotland embraced it with unrivalled enthusiasm. In that month in Paris, Louis Jacques Mandé Daguerre announced his daguerreotype process, and this was shortly followed by William Henry Fox Talbot in London of his photogenic drawings. This chapter describes the prehistory of photography and the beginnings of photography in Scotland.
