In August of 1888, Liberty Hyde Bailey and his family traveled to Europe on their first trip abroad. While in Germany (at that time a leader in the photographic industry), Bailey began to recognize the possibilities of using photography in his horticultural record-keeping. He photographed extensively during the six-month voyage, learning how best to expose glass plate negatives to a variety of lighting conditions. Bailey had substantially mastered the art by the time he returned to the United States in early 1889 to begin a new life at Cornell.
