Description

Family photograph album thought to have belonged to Henrietta Charlotte Johnston, wife of John Johnston.

Images are chiefly photographic portraits of family members and public figures, including Queen Victoria and her consort Prince Albert, in carte de viste and cabinet card format, taken circa 1860s-1880s by a range of photographers.

Also includes two photographs depicting building exteriors in landscape settings. Some of the portraits are partially hand-coloured.

Many of the subjects are named in pencil captions inscribed on album pages at a later date, with some of this information most likely taken from inscriptions on reverse of photographic mounts.
