Charles Marville began photographing in 1851 and over the next five years he made an extensive number of paper negatives of cathedrals, castles and cities, especially Paris. Over one hundred of his images were published by the photographer, printer and editor Blanquart-Evrard between 1851 - 1855. In 1856 Marville changed to glass negatives.
