Hi
I have an old photograph of tower bridge with barges and tugs. The photo was found in a lot which I bought at auction - several books of amateur photos. On the back of this one it says F11 3 1/2 mins - presumably something to do with exposure, which may date it. The paper is quite thin and the ink fading to sepia, but it has a real period look to it, and presumably it has never been otherwise published.
I was just about to sell it on Delcampe or Ebay. Any interest to you?

Hello - yes, I'd like to see it please.

The F11 3 1/2 mins refers to the aperture stop and exposure time for the camera that took the picture - and that's a long exposure!

Hi
I'm very sorry, also extremely frustrated, because I've been trying for ages but for some reason I can't seem to upload the photo to this site. I've tried zipping the file, and that doesn't work. Can I email it to you?
My apologies if the fault is at my end.
:oops:
