FEATURED PHOTO

This photograph of a double image of the Wanganui Public Museum Director, Samuel Drew, was taken using trick photography, which was very popular in the late 19th century. Needing new ideas to boost business, photographers developed techniques to duplicate images, particularly people. Special plate-holders and rotating partial lens caps were used to expose half of the negative at a time. After the first exposure, the subject of the photograph would quickly move into a different positron so that the second half of the picture could be taken.
