Photograph of a view taken in Killarney, depicting a lake surrounded by land. There is a rocky outcrop in the foreground, covered in plants. In the background, on the right, is a mountain.

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.
