Object history
Francis Frith was one of the most successful commercial photographers from the 1860s onwards. Throughout the 1850s and 1860s photographs of historical and topographical sites were highly desirable. This image is part of the V&A's Frith archive which consists of some 4200 whole plate albumen prints. The photographs are file prints which were probably used as place-makers allowing easy retrieval of stocks of unmounted prints at the Francis Frith & Co Archive.
