Photochroms–a photographic form of chromolithography that produces colorized images from black-and-white negatives–were immensely popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Millions of prints were produced depicting thousands of scenes from around the world.

Christopher Cardozo, a world-renowned expert, exhibitor, and donor of thousands of photochroms to the University Libraries shares his expertise in this display of images from a lost world.

This exhibit is co-curated by Christopher Cardozo and Tim Johnson, Curator, Special Collections & Rare Books / E. W. McDiarmid Curator of the Sherlock Holmes Collections.
