Lord Palmerston


A carte-de-visite portrait of Henry John Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston (1784- 1865). He was Prime Minister from 1855 to 1858, during which time he rectified Lord Aberdeen's mismanagement of the Crimean War, suppressed the Indian Mutiny, and carried through the Second Opium War. He was Prime Minister again from 1859 to 1865, when he almost involved Britain in the American Civil War on the side of the South.

Photographed by W. Walker and Sons of 64 Margaret Street, London.
