Technological improvements enabled Prince Albert to collect photographs of places that were significant to him


The Bank and Statue of Moore, Dublin

c.1880 after an original of c.1860

Carbon print | 7.5 x 7.2 cm (image) | RCIN 2320073

Photograph of an exterior view of the Bank of Ireland, formerly the Irish Houses of Parliament, and a sculpture of the Irish poet Thomas Moore (1779-1852).

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.
