Photograph of a view of the statue of King William III (1650-1702), commonly known as William of Orange, in Foster Place, Dublin. A man is seated on a stone pillar beside the statue. There are a series of buildings in the background.

The statue was damaged by explosions and removed in 1928.

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.
