Immortalising Sir Isaac

Fascinated to discover this website by Steve Lightfoot which is full of detail about the world of Victorian photographers of Leeds and Bradford.  In particular, there is an invaluable page about Albert Sachs, who photographed Sir Isaac Holden, offering a personal and technological perspective on a relatively unexplored aspect of the wonderful Holden Papers.

And here is one of Sachs’ images of Sir Isaac:
