Rustic scene, circa 1865
An unmounted albumen print showing a pretty girl standing by the entrance to a rustic cottage. A man is leaning over a gate behind her, while two further people watch from the doorway of the house.
Photographer and location unidentified.
Condition: the print has been skimmed off an album page and this has resulted in a small hole in the area of the sky. In addition, there is some slight yellowing towards the upper edge of the image. The print is otherwise in fine condition, with good tonal range.
Dimensions: the print has an arched top; at its widest, it measures 8” by 6.1” (20.3 cm by 15.6 cm).
