Cartes de visite photographs from the photoalbum of Philip Schou.

Philip Schou was member of the jury for group IX (Porcelain and Fajance) during the 1873 World's Fair in Vienna. He was the compiler of a small carte de visite album which holds photographs of other members of the jury together with Emperor Franz Joseph I and Archduke Rainer.

On the first page he wrote the following:
