On August 19

On this day in ...
... 2010 (today) , is celebrated World Photography Day. The day was chosen in commemoration of a session on August 19, 1839, in which the (now, alas, archaic) process of photography "was bought by the French Government and given free to the world." The full meaning of that quote is here.
