Description

A photograph taken by Paul Martin around 1898 of men at a London fair. A man demonstrates the latest in late nineteenth century drink dispensers. Umbrellas shade the 'R Whites Ginger beer' stall in the background. Paul Martin is regarded as a pioneer of photo journalism. In 1892 he bought a 'Facile' - a popular hand camera made by Fallowfield of London. With his camera disguised as a leather case, he was able to work unobserved, taking the candid photographs of daily life which are recognised as his greatest work.
