Don't you just love it? The original is on a sensitized copper plate and they were very much in vogue from about 1830 till towards the end of that century so heaven knows how old this shot actually is, but it's possibly from the very early days of photography. They were usually sold in a little wooden velvet lined case, which sadly in this case has been lost along the way.
Considering the equipment this photographer was using and how long the exposure time probably was it's a bit humbling just what a good image it still is.
