VICTORIAN B&W Photograph of a Vicar/Pastor by Queen Victoria's Photographer
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: From the UK comes this wonderful black and white photograph of a country parson, vicar, reverand, pastor or padre. The dapper gent wear a hat and his watch chain is quite visible. He stands in front of a painted country setting. What is so fabulous about this image is the back of the card - it seems the photographer won a ton of awards in the UK - Liverpool, Northampton, Dundee, Cornwall, London as well as overseas. Some of the stamps have a depiction of Queen Victoria, other stamps have different profiles/stamps - they all represent awards won by the photographer.
CONDITION: Pretty good for its age. Light markings to the front. The back has a bit of torn paper to the top edge but nothing that really interferes with being able to read the writing.
PHOTOGRAPHER: Lafayette, Dublin, Glasgow and Manchester, Photographer to Her Majesty the Queen by Royal Warrant and the Emperor of Germany!
SIZE: Card measures 4-1/2" x 6-1/2" approx; image size is 3-15/16" x 5-1/2".
FINAL COMMENTS: Pretty cool!
