Some of the earliest photos of Victorian women have come to light in a revealing and historical album of prints from the pioneering days of photography 150 years ago.
The rare set of pictures taken by Lady Clementina Hawarden, one of Britain’s first female photographers - whose work was avidly collected by Alice In Wonderland writer Lewis Carroll - is set to fetch £150,000 at auction.
The photos, which date back to the 1860s, were taken by Lady Hawarden of her daughters and rank as one of Britain’s first ever fashion shoots.
She is rated as one of the most influential Victorian fine art photographers, blazing the way for women in the profession when it was dominated by men.
