111. Autochrome of a lady in a bluebell wood by Henry Balfour, 1910s/20s

A larger plate taken in subtle lighting conditions again demonstrates the success of the autochrome at recording colours which satisfy the human eye. This example also shows the durability of the process - complete freshness has been retained in spite of having been kept without the usual protective cover glass and edge binding.
