Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Hello, I am researching this photo of Rossetti by Carroll. Sorry for my bad quality pics. I believe it's an albumen print, on very thin paper, 5-3/8 x 4 inches. I know the original was taken in 1863, however, the back has a faint pencil inscription: 1873 Life photo. There is an identical print with the oval framing in Morton N. Cohen's Reflections in a Looking Glass- from the Ransom Center.
Would anyone know if Carroll's photos were reprinted in the 1870s? Or could this be a more recent print?
Any information would be appreciated.
