Very interesting photography of the castles of Varlar, Rheda, Witgenstein, Hayd.
It is almost certainly the first photographic record of the castles.
A photograph of the studio and publishing house August Mencke & Co, Wandsbek near Hamburg. 1860-80, 20 x 26 albumen print, rolled up on a fixed and typographically prepared base carton with borders.
The printed signature under the photo, which pointed out the manufacturer and the vignette with the name of the view.
Photos nicely preserved, see picture! Some brightened prints and partly spotty, minimal mildew stains in the image area.
The illustrations are very realistic, i.e. almost like the original!
Please note again, it certainly concerns the first and rare photographs of the castles, between 1860 and 1880.
The figure was produced in the contact process and corresponded to the format of the negative.
Photographer: August Mencke and the staff of his studio in Hamburg.
