One of our more unusual photographic assignments recently, has been to photograph a large collection of beautiful barographs for a client who has had a passion for meteorology since being a young lad. His collection has grown significantly over the last 40 years and he now feels it's time to part with some of these instruments.

A bit more about Barographs
The barograph is a barometer which records a trace on a chart which is fitted to a clockwork drum which, in most types, revolves once every week. This type of instrument became very popular in the mid-Victorian age with little change in style over the last 150 years. The display barograph is the most sought after type, having a bevelled 5-glass hardwood lid & a chart draw at the base. Particularly collectable models a have barometer dial linked to the mechanism, a fitted thermometer maybe rounded corners to the hardwood base. Larger versions of these instruments can be found in sports & country clubs, town halls & hotels.
They also make an ideal gift for the home or office.
