Four CDVs of European Royalty

One with Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Her dress has purple highlights and the drapes and carpeting are red. Backmark of Mayall, London.

Cdv of "The Royal Family of England." Horizontal lithograph. No photographer's ID.

"Maximillian and Carlotta." No photographer's ID.

Copy photo with Spanish banner above oval portrait. On the ends of the banner are "Mexicanos" and "Viva Mexico." Below portrait is "Junio19th 1857." This was the period of Mexican independence and reform. The portrait seems to be Ignacio Ramirez (Juan Ignacio Paulino Ramirez Calzada, 1818-1879), a writer and political libertarian, considered part of the "romantic generation" of Mexican liberals. During Maximilian's reign Ramirez was banished to California. He returned following the ousting of the French, and under Porfirio Diaz, he expanded public education, especially for women and indigenous peoples, and secondary education was established.
