Senior Preston Lancashire Victorian Senior Police Officer - Original Cabinet Photograph, circa 1890s
This fine looking chap could well be the Chief Constable of Preston Police (but happy to be corrected!). He wears a ceremonial sword from waist belt and whistle and chain. Some wear to one corner of the card and the edges, but the photographic image itself is in very good condition.
By the early 1870s, cartes de visite were supplanted by "cabinet cards," which were also usually albumen prints, but larger, mounted on cardboard backs measuring 110 mm by 170 mm. Cabinet cards remained popular into the early 20th century.

Captain of the Volunteers pre 1908 wearing his EDVII Volunteer Decoration
Edwardian photo, cut to an oval shape, no doubt for display in an album or frame. No clue as to the unit. Interested in any identification please. Image is about as sharp as my photos so finding it hard to identify the Shoulder Belt Plate other than it is a stringed bugle in a wreath, which has been blackened. EVII cypher on Decoration. Other medal possibly a Vol LS medal as it has a plain ribbon. Circa 14cm tall.
