CDV with a nice seller’s label on the verso for Fred Passmore, Cheapside London “Under the Tree.” This covers what was probably the original publisher’s backmark, that I think was London Stereoscopic Company. A printed text on the bottom margin reads: “UPWARDS OF FIVE HUNDRED PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAITS OF THE MOST CELEBRATED PERSONAGES OF THE AGE. WITH A HAND-MAGNIFYING GLASS EVERY PORTRAIT WILL BE SEEN PERFECTLY.” Royalty are festured in the central panel. This is surely one of the most amazing composite photographs.
There is a soft bend in the upper left.
