Take a look at the media.worlds to find out more about the processes and cameras used in the early days of photography.

With a stock of around 160,000 photographs the web presentation "Motorsport in Österreich" impressively documents the way in which motor-sport disciplines have evolved in the course of the 20th century, underscoring the growing interest for motor racing in Austria. Have fun browsing!
