The first two images are from my Nicholson collection (family), taken at the Henry Mayson Art Room, Keswick, England ( Lake District ).
Henry Mayson was a very well known Victorian Photographer, known for his portraits & his outdoor photography.

The third image is for information purposes only, to explain the term Ordnance Model Depot as seen on the lower right of the cabinet card.

Henry Mayson also had a model of the Lake District.
He constructed a relief model of the Lake District, based on the mapping of the Ordnance Survey. The model was at 6 inches to 1 mile, 12 ft 9 ins by 9 ft 3 ins. It was exhibited in his photographic studio, charge one shilling.
