This is how St. Bride's Church in London appeared during the fire-blitz on December 29, 1941, when air raiders showered incendiary bombs on the British capital. Flames lick around the base of the church's wedding cake spire, after the roof of the church (at left) had collapsed.
Ferrotyped prints are processed in such a way that they are shiny. The print has a sensitive surface, usually thinner, because it was put through a press while still wet.
Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
