Frith Series. Albumen print approximately 6 " x 8 ", mounted behind card matte. Gives a day to night change.

These are transformation images where hand colouring has been applied to a backing of tissue paper. Viewed by reflected light they appear as ordinary monochrome images, by transmitted light the images either change from day to night or become coloured. Probably produced for Frith's Cosmoscope.
