Memorial works

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


The Linn of Quoich, Braemar

1883 after a c. 1859 original

Carbon print | 7.4 x 7.3 cm (image) | RCIN 2620028

Photograph of the River Quoich passing through a narrow gorge that is spanned by a wooden footbridge. The gorge is flanked on either side by tall trees.

Wilson produced several variations of this photograph, some featuring a single figure placed in the centre of the bridge. 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.
