Photograph of the abbey of Saint-Riguier, near Abbeville. The abbey's Gothic architecture indicates the building was built in the 15th and 16th centuries. The front is richly decorated, surmounted by a square tower. On the right side of the photograph is an 18th-century building of three stories. On the left is a shop with a sign reading ''Debit de Tabac'. This photograph is part of an album of prints presented to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as a memento of their state visit to France from 18-27 August 1855
