Vintage Travel Photographs 

An interesting exhibition of vintage photographs from the second half of the 19th century, is being run by the Department of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University. The exhibition in McCormick Hall, Princeton, New Jersey, USA, runs through September 28, 2007 and is called "Global Views: 19th-century Travel Photographs".

Early travel photographs are proving to be an important record of architectural and social history and this exhibition particularly illustrates how travel photographers documented historical monuments, archaeological sites and scenes of daily life from the Middle East and Asia, 100 to 150 years ago.
