Officer of lancers, circa 1865-75


An attractive carte de visite by James Robinson, Photographic Museum, 55 Grafton Street, Dublin showing a full length portrait of a junior cavaly officer in lancer uniform. He stands holding his lance cap in his left arm. The uniform suggests either the 5th [Royal Irish] or 12th [Prince of Wales] Lancers and the location of the photographer tends to make one lean towards the former.     jan18/6      SOLD 1st July 2022
