Photograph of a view of The Four Courts in Dublin. The River Liffey is located in the foreground of the photograph.

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.
