That Window

Lacock Abbey  04102009 069 (10)

This is one of the most important windows in the world. It was the subject of the first ever photograph printed from a negative (by William Fox Talbot at Lacock Abbey). It’s not the grandest of windows there and it’s not even marked out as such, but having seen the photograph in the adjacent Fox Talbot museum, I know this is the one.
