Photograph of an exterior view of the Museum Building, Trinity College, Dublin. There is a chain and pillar fence and lawned area 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.
