This portraitback to top

This page from an album marked 'The Property of Alexander Bassano' depicts a number of cabinet cards, showing varying poses, lined up on a wooden frame, along with the sitters' names and sitting numbers, which have then been re-photographed. The sitters in the album are society beauties, popular figures and actresses, such as Belle Bilton (Countess of Clancarty) and Mary Ansell who are pictured here. It is possible that Bassano used this album as a catalogue for the ordering of prints.
