Frith 1856 reversed out of the negative. Frith Photo 1857 and title printed on recto of the mount.In his monograph on Francis Frith, Douglas R. Nickel stressed that only a handful of prints from the early work of the photographer from before his expeditions in the Middle East, are available (ibid, p.45). The early date as well as the large size from a collodion negative contribute to the rarity of this print.
