Port de Balaklava pendant la guerre de Crimée (View of Balaklava Harbour during the Crimean War) [Title incorrect: View of Kamiesch]
Salted paper print from wet collodion on glass negative, Mounted on paper

This print has the handwritten French caption "Port de Balaklava pendant la guerre de Crimée" on the mount which is incorrect. The view is not of Balaklava, which is surrounded by steep hills, but of the French-controlled port of Kamiesch to the west of Sevastopol.
