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


Fir tree at Inverary Castle

1883 after an c. 1863 original

Carbon print | 8.0 x 7.1 cm (image) | RCIN 2620050

Photograph of a single fir tree standing in the centre of the frame. In the background and partially obscured by the tree is Inveraray Castle. Behind the castle is Duniquoich mountain.

This photograph is a later 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.
