Interesting post, but was it worth having to reveal you're a Daily Mail reader?
It *really* is a rag. 90% of the articles have errors in them - I despair at the quality of reporting, but as its "free news" I do look in most mornings, and most mornings wish afterwards that I hadn't bothered!

However, they keep running these "old photos" stories, which not only put up some interesting images, but also, I think, educate some people into the quality that was achieved with rudimentary equipment.
