The Latticed Window

By Cookie_Monster  
A little photography history today.

This the Latticed Window at Lacock Abbey, situated in the newer buildings, build sometime after the abbey had been dissolved.
Claim to fame is the photo taken by William Fox Talbot, a British inventor that lived in the 19th century at the abbey and who invented the concept of the negative.
