[] Portrait of James Inglis by Robert Adamson and D. O. Hill, October 2, 1844. Hill and Adamson attended the British Association for the Advancement of Science meeting at York in 1844, where they met Talbot and, presumably, other photographic scientists such as Herschel and Hunt. Inglis, a physician from Halifax, was one of the men they photographed on this occasion.
