Photograph by Roger Fenton (1819-1869). This is the earliest known photograph of a game of cricket. This match took place between the Royal Artillery and the Hunsdonbury Cricket Club at the Honourable Artillery Ground in Islington, London. Roger Fenton was a founding member of the Royal Photographic Society and one of the most influential photographers of the 1850s. He is best known as one of the first war photographers, from his work in the Crimea in 1855. However, he also took many highly-regarded photographs of the Royal Family and the collections of the British Museum as well as many superb landscapes, architectural studies and still lifes. http://www.scienceandsociety.co.uk/results.asp?image=10454066&wwwflag=3&imagepos=1&screenwidth=1280
