Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
This carte de visite by the Coxhead Brothers of Dunedin and Invercargill, New Zealand shows a subject type I have not seen before from this era. It shows a doll in period costume posed with miniature furniture, perhaps Catherine of Aragon or her daughter Mary I of England.
The brothers Frank Arnold Coxhead and Harry Coxhead were photographers in Dunedin and Invercargill during the period from about 1875 to 1879. Harry Coxhead was born in London about 1848 and died in Timaru, NZ in 1885. His brother Frank Arnold Coxhead was born in London about 1851 and died in Berkeley, California, USA in 1908.
