Photograph of an exterior view of the Bank of Ireland, Dublin, formerly the Irish Houses of Parliament. There is a path in the foreground, leading towards the bank. In the middle ground is a horse and carriage and a two men leaning against railings. The men wear dark clothing and top hats.

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.
