The B-24 Liberator used to be in-built better numbers than the other US warplane, but its strive against crews dwell, even this present day, within the shadow of the fewer considerable, yet better-known, B-17. debts of the 'Mighty 8th' in Europe, and certainly a number of the books and flicks that emerged from the best air crusade in heritage, frequently disregard the B-24, although it used to be in motion for so long as the Flying citadel, and took part in exactly as many perilous sunlight bombing missions.

The exposure required by the bitumen coating was about eight hours on a summer day, and since the sun changed position during that time, objects appear to be illuminated from both sides simul- beyond taneously. Niepce also made a still- heliograph with the camera on a bitumen-coated glass plate about 1829, but it and a copy of an engraving obtained on glass in 1822 were later life destroyed.

Development was by pyrogallic acid with subsequent processing by conventional means. Collodion was easier to work than the daguerreotype, and much more sensitive than the calotype. It yielded a negative image on glass, from which unlimited numbers of high quality paper prints could be made. Photographers everywhere eagerly adopted the collodion process, or wet plate, as it was popularly known. It became the universal negative material from about 1855 to 1880, and was printed on albiunen paper. Francis Bedford's view of Torquay, an English holiday town, shows the excellent tonal quality possible with this process.
