Loch-na-gar [sic]

1883 after an 1865 original

Carbon print | 8.0 x 7.4 cm (image) | RCIN 2620017

Photograph of the Corrie of Lochnagar towards the west buttress. A large, bowl shaped chasm with an area of water at the bottom is bordered by steeply ascending scree slopes is in the background. In the foreground is seated a man in right side profile.

Lochnagar, also know as Beinn Chiochan, is a mountain in the Grampians of Scotland located within the Balmoral estate. This photograph is typical of the album prints that were popular during the mid 1860's. These photographs were often taken from one half of a stereoscopic negative and are typically of a square format. 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.
