Early Photography – Here's a Collection of 42 Amazing Photographs from the 1840s

The coining of the word "photography" is usually attributed to Sir John Herschel in 1839. It is based on the Greek φῶς (phos), (genitive: phōtós) Meaning "light", and γραφή (graphê), meaning "drawing, writing", together meaning "drawing with light".
