Brief Description: Stereoscopic gelatine prints mounted on card, home-made. Interior of a room of Henry Perigal's house, cluttered with his things. Perigal himself is visible throught the door, sitting in the next room reading a newspaper. Among the many things visible in the photograph are his top hat and the 1890 profile photograph of him by Augustus Stroh (see 20919). Exceptionally good stereoscopic effect, with several depths receding through the open door, from the revolving book-press and near corner of the desk in the foreground to the window and picture behind Perigal himself in the room beyond. The window is in fact a mirror.
