Gelatine for Photography
It was reported that in
1844, Cox's, glue manufacturers of Gorgie, Edinburgh, had perfected a new
gelatine that was destined to be used some 25 years later in the
production of rapid gelatino photographic plates.
It was reported that this
gelatine had been tried for photographic purposes in 1849-50, but the
tests had failed.
