    Great detective work. We've added the citation and John Gibson's name to the image record in the HEIR database. We've also linked this to the similar view of image 41072. Thanks for your help improving the database.

    Thanks for this additional information about this image. We've added your remarks to the image notes in the HEIR database and revised the caption a bit. It's not uncommon, in our experience, for commercial lantern slide makers like Taunt to sell an image for many years after it was created, hence the university's 1895 purchase of an 1870 engraving.

    You're right about H M J Underhill's background: "He was the eldest son of Henry Scrivener Underhill, the proprietor of a 'High Class Grocer to Gentlemen of the University' in the High Street," according to the ADS website. See http://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk/archives/view/underhill_na_2004/overview.cfm?archive=underhill for his full biography.

    Not all of the images in the HEIR digital image archive are derived from photographs or negatives. We have at least 43 paintings by Underhill that were digitised from lantern slides in our collection.

    We've flipped the image in the HEIR database and appreciate your assistance in improving our accuracy. The 1839 date in the caption is when the architect Harvey Lonsdale Elmes won the design competition for the building.
