Sesquicentenary of Iconic Maldon Panorama

We are celebrating the sesquicentenary of this remarkable panorama of early Maldon with an exhibition. The 3-plate image was produced by travelling photographer, Mr. C. Armstrong, in April 1867.

Our exhibition includes an original print of the photograph and digital explorations of it, plus ephemera and reports from the day.

The lengthy and somewhat dangerous ‘wet plate’ processing and albumen printing of photographs was unimaginably different from today’s world of instant digital images.

Open: Saturdays during June (1:30pm to 4:00pm), plus Sunday June 11 (10am to 2pm)

Entry: Adult $5, children under 17 free
