I am looking for any expert opinions on who may have created this mammoth plate albumen photograph of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. My apologies for posting about a French photo, but I feel that, given the expertise of the members here, this is my best chance of finding an answer
This is an albumen photograph, mammoth plate, 18 x 22 inches. (46 x 66 CM) . it is clearly later than 1860, as it shows the spire created in that year.
I have searched for years , but have found no images of Notre Dame of this size.
The lower right corner is missing, and I have used similar colors of albumen prints to approximate the missing piece. (yes,on the photo with paste---is this sacrilegious?)
I wonder if the Missing lower right piece may have been cut off because it included a signature or other valuable mark?
A long-shot request indeed, but I rely again on the members here to speculate.
Many thanks, David
