Wilson Bentley Snowflake Design - Wrapping Paper 70x100.

In 1885, Wilson Alwyn Bentley (aka Snowflake Bentley, the Snowflake Man) attached a microscope to a bellows camera at his farm in Bentley Jericho, Vermont, and took the first photograph of a single snowflake. Bentley wrote in 1925:

“Every crystal was a masterpiece of design and no one design was ever repeated. When a snowflake melted, that design was forever lost.”
