Can anybody identify these images please? They are possibly salt prints but have no identification. Thank you

That's an interesting possibility. Much appreciated,
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
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
I forgot to transpose the sizes from the filenames.
First image is 185x246mm the other is 189x253mm.
