    A process invented in 1864 by Jacob Wothly based on the light sensitivity of uranium salt when in contact with organic matter, thus avoiding the tendency of silver prints to fade.

    Condition: fine - although both have some minute pin holes at the top. 63 x 101mm (2 ˝ x 4in) each photograph.
