    Hello! Nice pictures. Do you happen to know any data about the picture, e.g. who’s the author of the picture Pilgrims enteing Betlehem, and the type of technique it was applied. Thanks. R

    Both pictures are from wikipedia. So you find more information there.

    The first picture is lacking author information.
    The second picture is from Félix Bonfils:

    I would guess that they were made with collodion process, which was widely used during that time. But I’m not sure about that.
