Canson® secured a patent for a photographic paper

 

Canson® secured a patent for a photographic paper In 1865 Canson® secured a patent on December 8th 1865 since the process was simpler and cost less than the ones used before then. This Canson® paper cut out the need to use the platinum or gold chloride that toning entailed.

 

Napoléon III marries Eugénie de Montijo. Emperors succeed one another, battles are won, but Canson paper remains.
