Memorial works

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


The Linn of Dee - Braemar

1883 after an c. 1860 original

Carbon print | 8.9 x 5.8 cm (image) | RCIN 2620029

Photograph of a single arched stone bridge spanning the River Dee that flows through a narrow gap in rocks. Trees border the small gorge.

Wilson took another version of this view featuring a man seated in the left of the foreground. Figures were often included in the photographs to provide a sense of scale. 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.
