Part of Black Chronicles II, an exhibit at Rivington Place in London.


Black Chronicles II is a public showcase of Autograph ABP’s commitment to continuous critical enquiry into archive images which have been overlooked, under-researched or simply not recognised as significant previously, but which are highly relevant to black representational politics and cultural history today. For the first time acomprehensive body of portraits depicting black people prior to the beginning of the second world war are brought together in this exhibition - identified through original research carried out in the holdings of national public archives and by examining privately owned collections. This research also coincides with Autograph ABP’s continuous search for the earliest photographic image of a black person created in the UK.

Broadside Ballads from the Bodleian libraries hosts a great collection.  I am especially impressed by the fantastic illustration archive, divided into neat and specific categories.  Go look!

The University of California’s English Broadside Ballad Archive is also a fantastic project, with a dedicated team making previously hard to find (on microfiche or in archive) broadsides available to everyone, and transcribed to modern eyes and ears.  Amazing.  What we have online is amazing.

“She knows, now, absolutely, hearing the white noise that is London, that Damien’s theory of jet lag is correct: that her mortal soul is leagues behind her, being reeled in on some ghostly umbilical down the vanished wake of the plane that brought her here, hundreds of thousands of feet above the Atlantic. Souls can’t move that quickly, and are left behind, and must be awaited, upon arrival, like lost luggage.”

William Gibson, Pattern Recognition

I arrived in London seven hours ago and I have only the vaguest idea of what day and time it actually is, or whether I should be awake or asleep. Slept for maybe 2 hours on the plane, having left the US at 7pm US Central time. If I didn’t have a phone to tell me the date and time, I’d be lost.
