Deer in Motion, 1881, Eadweard Muybridge (COPY 1/54)

The blog will be taking a break over Christmas and New Year (but look out for a special post on Friday 28 December). In the mean time, we’d like to leave you with one of our very favourite records from the archives, this 1881 motion study of a running deer by pioneering Victorian photographer Eadweard Muybridge (catalogue reference COPY 1/54 f.278).

Please ‘continue reading’ to see the deer run!


Deer runningTake a look back through the year’s posts – we’ve published 193 (!) since we launched in February – and please do tell us what you think of our proposed improvements for 2013.


Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all at The National Archives.
