    Thank you. I teach photography at a middle school in Houston, TX. I was looking for a good online slideshow of the history of photography and came across yours. I learned a few things myself! I have more students looking at your presentation throughout the rest of today and then we will be doing hands-on history of photography demonstrations tomorrow (we have old cameras, some darkroom equipment, a variety of prints from the late 1800s through present day, and slides and negatives for students to view through a loupe on a light box.
    Thank you for putting together such an informative slideshow and making it available online. We’re enjoying it.
