Description:
This carte-de-visite is one item within an album/scrapbook containing small watercolour sketches, letters and newspaper cuttings as well as photographs. The scrapbook belonged originally to Cordelia Ellen Thomas (nee Husband) (1835-1857) and was handed on to her daughter Caroline Georgiana (Georgie) Home Thomas in 1873. Georgie was born in Lucknow but, after her mother's death during the seige of Lucknow in 1857, was sent to Sydney where she lived with her maternal grandparents from May 1858 until April 1868 when she went to school in England. The photograph was taken in England before she returned to her father in India in 1874.
