The Prince Consort's Statue at Balmoral

1883 after an 1867 original

Carbon print | 8.8 x 5.7 cm (image) | RCIN 2620036

Photograph of a statue of Albert, Prince Consort who is depicted standing wearing a tartan kilt, with a dog at his right side and holding a rifle by his left side. The statue is placed on top of boulders positioned side by side to form a double column. A wooden fence encloses the base of the statue. In the background stands an obelisk.

The statue of the Prince Consort was unveiled on the 15th October 1867 by Queen Victoria and was designed by the sculptor William Theed (1804-91). 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.
