Full-TextPHOTO EXHIBIT SEEN AT BANK Development of Art Shown in Unique Display A second group of the series of photographs designed to show the development of photography since its invention by Daguerre, 100 years ago, has been hung in the lobby of the First National bank. Prints included in this group have been sent to Portland by Dr. Oliver J. Lee, director of the Dearborn observatory in Evanston, Ill. While the exhibit is small, including fewer than a dozen prints, it is of especial interest alike to those who study astronomy and to those who are themselves photographers and understand the service to science which the modern photographer and his equipment render. The print of the planetoid Eros, one of the nearly 1000 small stars that revolve between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, is a fine example of the use to which modern photography is being put to aid science. Other prints include and the texts explaining them show how telescope and photography combine to provide a visual study of planets, to determine the distances of many of the stars, and to make spectrographic studies of the stars. Prints made from exposures of a special camera designed for photographic work just in the red end of the visual spectrum are in the exhibit. Panchromatic films and a prism made from medium dense silicate flint were used. Each print is accompanied by a brief and lucid explanation written by Dr. Lee. The exhibit has been brought to Portland by Albert Jourdan, and is one of a series that will be part of a large exhibit to be presented this fall in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Daguerre's discovery.
