Unidentified sitter


A carte-de-visite portrait of a woman standing next to a birdcage, with a small parrot or parakeet sitting on top of the cage. It’s possible that the bird is hers and she brought it to the studio with her, or perhaps it’s a studio prop and the bird is in fact stuffed. The possibility also exists that there is a visual link between the prop and the photographer's surname.

Photographed by F.C. Bird of Dungarvan Buildings, Frome.
