Albumen Photographs

See the:
Stanford University Presentation of Albumen Photography - "Albumen was a breakthrough mid-19th century photography technology. It's a process that begins with the actual breaking of eggs and the preparation of albumenized paper. The technique offered fine image resolution, extended tonal range, and was widely adapted for single prints and for reproducing illustrations. At this extensive archive, we learned about the science and technique of albumen printing and about modern efforts to conserve and restore albumen images. However, we spent most of our time looking at the pictures: hand-colored and ivory-toned images from Meiji Japan, Julia Margaret Cameron's portraits of eminent Victorians, and Atget's archetypal Parisian scenes."
