The Watkins album: photographs by Herbert Watkins, late 1850s

A series of photographs of distinguished contemporaries, which Watkins published with printed biographies under the title of National Gallery of Photographic Portraits. The photographer claimed in his advertisements that his photographs were 'as remarkable for their agreeable fidelity to nature as for their brilliancy of production and their economy of cost'.
