British professional photographer. In 1868, he set up his own photographic business in Oxford. Henry Taunt's black-and-white photographs are mainly views of Oxford, Oxfordshire (together with surrounding counties) and the River Thames. He produced the first pocket guide to the River Thames to be illustrated with photographs. Taunt's photographs are reproduced in many books and form a useful historical record of social history and architecture. Major collections of his work are held by English Heritage: 14,000 images, Oxfordshire County Council: Oxfordshire Studies and the River and Rowing Museum at Henley. He died on 4 November 1922.
