Sharing my favorite images from the early days of photography...

Title: The Ascent of Mont Blanc

Date: 1861

Photographer: Auguste-Rosalie Bisson (1826-1900)

Process: albumen silver print from glass negative

Note: Bisson, an experienced guide and other 25 people (who carried carrying the plates, cameras, chemicals, and portable darkroom tent) reached the Mont Blanc summit on July 25, 1861. However, the photo you see was "organized" during the descent.
