'Market women'


A carte-de-visite showing a group of Welsh women gathered around an outdoor table, with vegetables and other market produce prominently placed in the composition. A printed caption recto in the lower margin gives the photograph its title.

Photographed by Francis Bedford.

Given the almost square format and the photographer's working pattern, the image was almost certainly created as a stereoview and then later produced in carte format.
