Camera Obscura

In Use of the Camera Obscura the author states, " From this circumstance, the utility of placing such apparuatus in all places of public amusement and exhibitison, must be obvious. Whether it might be proper to erect it in the streets of a populous city like this, and to place it under the inspection of an officer for the detection of mischief and crime, is a matter worthy of the consideration of the local authorities." This means a a newer technology for the camera was something that was well needed. If the camera was able to capture the pick pocketer out of a crowd, then imagine what else it could do. The authorities would be able to have so much more control the towns.

Describe the situation clearly and then present the quotation and your analysis. The reader may not understand your point from the brief quotation alone. Some explanation of the context is necessary first. Don't forget to cite the source and the date as well. Don't forget to proof read and spell check before posting.
