Photography At The Palace. Mr. Mayall has put together, in a "Royal Album," the series of royal photographic portraits made by him from time to time at Buckingham Palace. These exquisite studies from the real life are fourteen in number: one of the Queen and Prince Consort, one of the Queen and Princess Beatrice, one of the Queen alone, one of the Prince alone, one of the Prince of Wales and Princess Alice, one of the Prince of Wales, one of Princess Alice, one of Prince Alfred, one of the Princesses Helena and Louisa, one of Princess Helena alone, one of Princess Louisa alone, one of Princes Arthur and Leopold, one of Prince Arthur alone, and one of Princess Beatrice; each study reproducing, with a homely truth, far more precious to the historian than any effort of a nattering court artist, the lineaments of the royal race. The Album reflects the highest credit on Mr. Mayall. Athenaeum.
