Other places to find Taunt photographs
- Oxfordshire History Centre retains Taunt’s original prints but his surviving glass plate negatives are now held in the English Heritage Archives in Swindon. The two collections have been ‘virtually’ reunited as a result of a joint digitisation project funded by the New Opportunities Fund.
- You can see a browseable and searchable library of Taunt images at the English Heritage ViewFinder website. The site also includes themed exhibitions about Henry Taunt’s life and work.
