George Washington Wilson established a photographic studio in Aberdeen in 1848. In 1873, he received a Royal Warrant as photographer to Queen Victoria. By the 1880s he had built up a substantial business as one of the world's largest publishers of topographic views, producing thousands of stereocards, cartes de visite and albumen prints. This photograph is from an album containing sixty photographic views of London.
