Title Sepia photo of an Italian mountain battery
Nationality British
Period c 1880-90
Price £40.00

This sepia photograph, pasted on a card page torn from a British military album, shows a battery of Italian mountain artillery in front of their barracks - 'Caserma Alfonso La-Marmora' (Rome). They appear to be in tropical kit, as many of them are wearing white foreign service helmets, with saddlery, ammunition boxes and guns in the foreground.

The dimensions of the photo are 22.5 x 17cm. Apart from some distortion of the image due to the buckling and shrinkage of the card and a little fading, the image is still quite sharp. The overall colour is a somewhat yellowed sepia. There is a little abrasion to the background at the top right hand corner.

Just to let you know that the bayonet arrived safely this morning by Royal Mail. I am delighted with it and it will be put to very good use at some forthcoming events.
