Photograph of a view of a path surrounded by trees. At the end of the path is a gate and fence. Photograph taken on Dinis Island, Killarney.

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.
