70. Lewis Carroll's albumen print of 'Queen Eleanor and Fair Rosamond', June 1862

The albumen print was obtained from a wet-collodion glass negative. The photographic paper was so-called as it was treated with white of egg (albumen). The positive image was made by 'printing out', that is the paper was exposed beneath the negative in a printing frame until the image appeared.

Albumen print 105 x 200 mm.
