Legendary guitarist, astrophysicist, and photography collector Brian May has found the earliest known family photo taken at Stonehenge, from the 1860s. The image was in his own world-class collection of stereoscopic photos. (Among other photo genres, May has an incredible collection of "diableries," stereoscopic depictions of life in hell.) From the Daily Grail:
…When English Heritage launched "Your Stonehenge: 150 Years of Personal Photos", and challenged the public to find early images of the megaliths, May instigated a search of his own stereoscope image collection – the largest in the world with over 100,000 in his archive.
The image that was uncovered was taken by photographer Henry Brooks of his family enjoying a day out at the ancient monument in the 1860s.
