This antique cabinet card features an actual photo of the Halifax Parish Church; the detail is amazing (not to mention the church itself is absolutely breathtaking).
Although it’s difficult to see in the photos, there are a few people walking near the church; two are a bit blurred.
The bottom of the cabinet card reads: Cabinet Portrait, T. Illingworth, Halifax. The back of the card reads: “The new Instantaneous Process for Children. Studio,T. Illingworth, Artist & Photographer, 41, Crown Street, Halifax. Copies of this picture can always be had of the same size, or enlarged to life size & under. Reeves & Hoare, London”. In pencil, someone has written: Halifax Parish Church, Billi.
The overall condition is very good, with light soiling on the front & back.
The card measures 4 ¼” X 6 ¼”.
This would make a wonderful addition to any antique Cabinet Card collection.
