372 1858, London, Photographic Society A Frame containing Two Specimens of the application of Photography to Meteorology. No 1 is a Photometeorograph of the Atmospheric Wave which passed over Europe in November 1854. No 2 is a Photometeorograph of a STORM, showing its effect on the Barometer, Dry- and Wet-Bulb Thermometers, and Rain Gauge. No 2 was printed from the original daily curves, which were Photographed in the Self-registering Meteorological Instruments at the Radcliffe Observatory, Oxford. No 1 was obtained by joining the original sheets from the Barograph and taking a reduced Photographic copy of them, from which the above was printed. Waxed-paper
