Photograph of a view of Sackville Street, now O'Connell Street, Dublin.  A small number of people, including a man holding a broom, stand in the foreground. In the middle ground is Nelson's Pillar. Behind Nelson's Pillar, on the left side of the street, is the General Post Office.

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.
