Photograph of a view of Killarney, Ireland. There is a body of water in the foreground that feeds into a lake that extends into the background. In the background is a hill surrounded by rocky outcrops.

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.
