A handmade album of tinted views of Cumbria and Scotland from the mid-victorian period. The compiler has handsewn two embossed sheets of card with decorative pink ribbon flourishes to form the binding of the album. This front and rear covers are decorated with two pencil drawings of Holyrood Chapel. Internally there are ten pages of images, each card stitched to the card page with red thread, moving from Cumbria into the Scottish Highlands with a final section on Edinburgh. There is no hint as to ownership or whether this was the work of a tourist or a Scot.
