Llanberis, Quarrymen and Velocipedes, c 1880.

WALES - SEPTEMBER 03: Quarrymen chiselling blocks of stone at the slate quarry in Llanberis, Wales. In the backgound is a funicular railway, possibly for transporting slate. Photograph published by Francis Bedford & Co. Bedford (1816-1894) was a prolific and well-respected photographer, best known for his numerous topographic and architectural views of Britain. In 1857 Bedford became a member of the Photographic Society and in 1862 he accompanied the Prince of Wales, the future Edward VII (1841-1910), as official photographer on a tour of the Middle East. During the 1860s and 1870s Bedford travelled extensively throughout Britain, taking hundreds of views of British scenery. He was assisted by his son, William (1846-1893) whose work is almost indistinguishable from that of his father. (Photo by SSPL/Getty Images)
