Studio portrait of soldier holding baton.
NB: This is a photo-of-a-photo. The original studio portrait print of a soldier holding a baton has been pinned to a board and re-photographed. On the original, you can still see the pins used to hold the studio print in place.
Photographer of the original studio portrait is unknown. But the ‘photo of the photo’ is thought to be by George Blyth.
With thanks to David Taylor of Percy Cross for donating a set of silver gelatin dry photographic negative plates of which this image forms a part.
