Winterthur Digital Collections

About this collection

Taken between 1910 and 1921, Winterthur founder Henry Francis du Pont had his estate’s gardens and grounds photographed, using the autochrome process that had been developed by the Lumière brothers – Auguste and Louis – in France and first marketed in 1907.  The views include close-ups of flowers, roads, grounds by the house, fall foliage and the old formal garden area with its paths and pergolas.  Color slides of these autochromes are available for use by researchers.
