Photograph of an exterior view of Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin. The Cathedral is surrounded by an iron fence. There is a road in the foreground.

A carbon copy is adhered on top of the original albumen print. Carbon prints are more stable compared to albumen prints, the latter prone to fading. Carbon copies were therefore created for posterity.
