Almost vanished. Alexandrine Salmon (née Breton, 1835-1911): photographer`s advertisement
6th plate French ambrotype
photographer unknown, c. 1860

The impression of the photographer`s advertisement, glued on the back of the ambrotype (scan in its original position and a digitally enhanced version):

]TS.
Photog[

"ts" could be the final letters of the photographer`s name or firm, but they might as well come from "portraits". In its present state, this doesn`t add much to our knowledge of Mme Salmon’s whereabouts, but maybe someone will recognize the same fonts and design on a better preserved photograph. Suggestions are warmly welcome.
