Historical Photographs by Eadweard Muybridge

I've recently added a new gallery containing a selection of archival photographs by English photographer Eadweard Muybridge, who was also known as Edward Muybridge (1830-1904), to my stock photography website. These historically valuable images were the product of Muybridge's 1875 photographic expedition through Central America and Mexico. Most were commissioned by the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, which had extensive trade and passenger routes in the region. Muybridge sailed from San Francisco on one of their ships and spent almost nine months in Central America and Mexico documenting towns, landscapes, and coffee plantations among other subjects. Click here or on the image below of the frontispiece to Eadweard Muybridge's Central America and Mexico Album published in 1877 to view the gallery. It is also possible to order prints by clicking on the shopping cart "Buy" icon.
