actual image size: 32cm x 23cm


A photographic view of the medieval Wye bridge over the River Wye, with Hereford Cathedral in the distance, published by Francis Bedford & Co. The city dates from the seventh century and its cathedral from the eleventh, making it one of the oldest in England. Bedford (1816-1894) was a prolific and well-respected photographer, best known for his numerous topographic and architectural views of Britain. In 1857 Bedford became a member of the Photographic Society. During the 1860s and 1870s Bedford travelled extensively throughout Britain, taking hundreds of views of British scenery. He was asisted by his son, William (1846-1893) whose work is almost indistinguishable from that of his father.
