This early photo, of Beckford's tower in Bath, was tipped into an 1850 edition of Vathek, published in London. There is no date supplied to suggest a year in which this picture was taken; it is, however, no doubt that it is relatively early, possibly dating from the early 1860's or early 1870's. The keeper of this site would be very grateful for any information as to the dating of this photograph. Please e-mail any information or suggestions to Dick Claésson.
