A 'spirit' photograph

A 'spirit' photograph


A late 19th-century brown toned silver print showing two women seated outdoors against an improvised backdrop, with the ‘spirit’ of a young girl hovering over them. The photographer has created the image using the tried-and-tested collage method.

Photographer and location unidentified, but almost certainly French, judging by the context of the album.
