Memorial works

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


The Linn of Muick

1883 after a c. 1862 original

Carbon print | 7.9 x 7.2 cm (image) | RCIN 2620032

Photograph of the River Muick cascading over rocks. A wooden footbridge placed over boulders is situated at the top of the waterfall.

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.
