Balmoral Castle, from the south east

1883 after an 1863 original

Carbon print | 6.0 x 8.7 cm (image) | RCIN 2620001

Photograph of Balmoral Castle from the south east with two men in the foreground. One wears a bowler hat and is seated on a bench and the other stands with his back to the viewer wearing a tartan kilt and glengarry hat. In the foreground stand a cluster of trees. 

This photograph is a carbon copy of the original albumen photograph. Carbon was a process that was less susceptible to fading, unlike an albumen print that is prone to discolouration over time.
