Photograph of a view of Kingstown railway station in Dublin. The neoclassical building is located in the background of the photograph. In front of the building are a number of horse-drawn carriages and drivers. There is a post and chain fence 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.
