Hi John, I'm currently researching a album from c1870's, the paper could be a semi or lightly albumenised paper. (I believe around this time there was a revival in using a more matt type of paper, as opposed to the highly glossed fully albumenised papers of the time).

I hope this helps a little

Thanks Alun

Hi John, I haven't found out where the second image was taken, but the first one is of Carshalton Ponds, here is a link the Sutton (south west London) web site.

I hope this helps, Alun
