    Made an appointment with Death






    This ambrotype photograph was taken by Henry Death of Camberwell, London. One has to feel sorry for the photographer as it must have been hard for his sitters telling their friends that they had ‘made an appointment with Death’. The accession register for this photograph states that the woman in the portrait is the grandmother of a local Sydney woman, Mrs. M. W. Carter, and was taken around 1862.
