A magnificent Monument to Albert, the late Prince Consort, erected by the English Nation at a cost of �120,000, half of which was defrayed by voluntary contributions.
On a spacious platform, to which granite steps ascend on each side, rises a podium on stylobate, adorned with reliefs in marble, representing Artists of every period. On the South side are Poets and Musicians, on the East side Painters, on the North side Architects, and on the West Sculptors. The Whole Monument is 175 feet in height. [text accompanying photograph]
The volume containing these images by an unidentified photographer bears the imprint "With H. and C. F. Feist's compliments" but no name, date, or place of publication, though the Feists were dealers in port wine, and Plate 30 demonstrates that the photograph must have been taken after 1902, and John R. Mendel offers evidence that it dates before mid-1906 [GPL].
