Victorian Cattle

A fascinating old Victorian Opalotype Milk Glass Photograph from the late 1800s. Opalotype prints were created by an 1850s process, patented by Glover and Boyd in 1857 in Liverpool. They were created using either silver gelatin or carbon emulsion and were produced in a darkroom from a conventional negative thus enabling the photographer to produce multiple copies.

The scene is equally fascinating and shows cattle grazing on what would today be the Car Haven Car Park off Bishops Road.
