Following Albert’s premature death, Victoria commissioned the creation of photographs and decorative objects that memorialised her beloved husband


Balmoral Castle, from the south-west

1883 after an 1863 original

Carbon print | 17.5 x 13.2 cm (whole object) | RCIN 2620003

Photograph of a view of Balmoral Castle, taken from the south-west. The castle is located in the background. In the middle ground, a woman is seated on a bench. A man stands behind her, facing right, his face captured in profile. A light colour path runs the length of the print, leading the eye from the foreground to the castle in the background.

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.
