Photograph of the inside of the Mezquita de Córdoba
Cordoba (Spain): NA, 1880. An attractive photograph of the pillars inside the Mezquita de Córdoba (The mosque). By an unknown photographer. Circa 1880-1890. Pasted onto a stiff grey mounting card, with calligraphic title beneath ("Del inre af Kathedralen i Cordova"). It bears the number 8 in the negative, so may be a tourist photograph. The photograph is in good condition with a couple of small nicks to the edges. The mounting card is in good clean condition. Dating from this period, it is difficult to distinguish between and albumen print and an early silver gelatin card mounted photograph. We lean towards the latter. Photograph size is 220mm x 280mm. The mount size is 345mm x 410mm.
