|A topographical carte-de-visite showing quarrymen and velocipedes at Llanberis, a town in North Wales that grew up around the slate quarrying industry.
Photographed by Francis Bedford, identified by his backplate on the reverse of the mount.
Francis Bedford (1816-1894) was active as a photographer from 1857, and during his career he produced a large number of views of England and Wales. He is widely regarded as having created some of the finest scenic and architectural views ever seen. The work of men like Bedford and George Washington Wilson of Aberdeen has provided us with invaluable information concerning many historical buildings which have long since vanished.
condition: The mount shows a small amount of faint foxing; the print is in really excellent condition.
