"HI Mike, below picture of Victoria and family photographed by Mayall is also pasted in the album and might be of the same source of newspaper as the "Garibaldi" portrait. Maybe this helps, too. Best regards, Rebecca"

"It is , indeed, the Garibaldi impersonator. May I ask: a) is the album British; b) is it dated; c) are any photographers' names in evidence? Update: visual information is slowly coming in, but nothing regarding the sitter's identity, or…"

Yes dear Michael, I was thinking to Pietro Becchetti...

Have you got a name for Bioni? There are few places, here in Milan, where I can try to have a look!

Hi Michael! I’m sorry but unfortunatlly I really havent the faintest idea. If you tell me that the photographer is British I can’t even suggest you anything. If he is Italian there was in Rome a very nice old, not too in shape, I wonder if he’s still alive, man who wrote several books e n Italian photographers mid XIX century. If you are interested I can try to find his name...
