About this work


"Herbert Barraud continued with his work in the medical field to create the ambitious Members of the International Medical Congress, London, 1881, a composite photograph of the 684 members of the seventh congress arranged in an impressive neo-Gothic tiered hall which, it has been suggested, is the interior of St James's Hall, Piccadilly. The photograph was published with a key by Bailliere, Tindall, and Cox and was available in two sizes—47 inches by 30 or 29 inches by 20."--Magda Keaney, loc. cit.


London (20 King William Street, Strand, WC) : Messrs. Bailliere, Tindall & Cox, February 25th, 1882.
