106-7. Miss Acland's still life of a basket of vegetables colour prints, c. 1906

The Oxford amateur photographer Sarah Angelina Acland has experimented here with two different solutions to the very difficult problem of producing prints on paper from separation negatives. Very few paper prints of such early date exist. One uses the three-colour carbon process (matt surface), essentially that invented in the 1860s by Ducos du Hauron; the other is the dye imbibition process (glossy surface) introduced by Sanger Shepherd in 1906.

Paper prints 81 x 119 mm.
