Victorian Photograph Collection
Of
Jennifer Carnell

This page is a catalogue of some of my collection.
My earliest experience with Victorian photographs was as a child when I was given a box of stereoviews by my grandparents. I began collecting photographs myself six years ago, when I started to collect carte de visites of Victorian actors who had performed with Mary Elizabeth Braddon; this led to me looking at other photographs. I'm still collecting some carte de visites of actors for my theatre book, and I also like identified sitters, interesting backgrounds and 1840s to 1860s photographers.
