A Photographic Incident
Shows a woman, clad in a black shawl, being photographed by a man who is partly obscured by the black cloth affixed to the back of his camera obscura. The caption reveals that 'Those who are familiar with the phenomena of the Camera Obscura', will understand why the woman has 'taken the precaution' (i.e. put on the shawl) 'on being focussed for her Carte de Visite'.
