Albert and Victoria’s collection shows photographers’ working methods

Leonida Caldesi (1823-91)

Dandie Dinmont, Dankel and Cowley the Jager 1857

RCIN 2083082

Glass plate negative of the Jager (a huntsman) Cowley and two dogs, Dandie Dinmont (a Skye terrier) and Dankel (a dachshund), photographed at the Royal Kennels, Windsor Home Park. Dandie Dinmont was given to Queen Victoria by Prince Albert on 24 May 1842.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. Prints from this negative do not seem to exist in the Collection, however a variant from the same sitting is represented by RCIN 2940268.
