Prince of Wales
Albumen print, c. 1860
8-9/10; 199 x 143 mm, mounted
$750.

This is a rare early photograph of the future Edward VII that is not either a carte de visite or sold by a publisher. This print comes from an album of important early photographs. The facing page was inscribed in pencil – 'Prince of Wales. J. Watkins'. The same image (trimmed smaller and oval and published by R.H. Mason) is in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery in London. This image is probably the one commissioned by Queen Victoria before the Prince of Wales tour of Canada. John Watkins managed Beard's Westminster daguerreotype studio until 1851. From 1865, he formed a partnership with his brother Charles and that studio took many portraits of celebrities.
