Balmoral Castle, from the south-east

1883 after an 1863 original

Carbon print | 17.5 x 13.2 cm (whole object) | RCIN 2620002

Photograph of a view of Balmoral Castle, taken from the south-east. In the foreground, at the centre of the photograph, a man is seated on a bench, facing left, his face captured in profile.

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.
