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


The Dhuloch

1883 after an 1866 original

Carbon print | 7.8 x 7.3 cm (image) | RCIN 2620035

Photograph of a loch bordered by mountains in the background. In the right of the foreground, a man wearing a cap and tartan trousers and holding a walking stick or crook, is seated in left side profile by a large boulder.

George Washington Wilson took a number of views of the Dhu Loch that featured Keepers, possibly from the Balmoral Estate. Many of the photographs feature the keepers standing or sitting by the large boulder on the right of the foreground. The Dhu Loch is a reservoir serving the town of Rothesay in Argyll and Bute in Scotland. 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.
