Ældre fotos af de største engelske seværdigheder omkring 1880
Found some time ago a small "treasure" in our family papers. A tiny collection of photos, earlier than 1881, from great sites in UK: London, Lincoln, Chester, York and Stafford. They are mounted in a scrapbook, used by Octavius (yes he was child no. 8) Adolph. 1857-1929. He was i UK in 1881, for an agriculture education. He later married a girl from Scottland and they settled in a small manor house, Bodal, in Sealand, Denmark. I would suggest, that the photos were taken between 1875 and 1880, wet plates, albumin. Different sizes CDV: (London, York and Stafford). 7,5x11,5: (Chester) and 10,5x15 cm: (Lincoln).
