Bathers at a sulphur spring in Guadeloupe, c. 1895

A glossy silver print showing five men at some sulphur baths in Guadeloupe. Four of the men are appropriately dressed for their activity and a fifth, standing on the steps, is wearing a suit. 

The archipelago of Guadeloupe is an overseas department of France in the Caribbean. 

An inscription in German in the lower margin reads: ‘Bad in ein Schwefelquellen in Guadeloupe’ [Bath in a sulphur spring in Guadeloupe].

Photographer unidentified.

Condition: the print is in excellent condition. The mount of greenish-grey Bristol board presents a small amount of minor corner wear and a few small marks verso but is otherwise clean, firm and solid.
