Cameron was presented with her first camera in 1863, at the age of 48, and subsequently embraced photography with a passion. She compiled this album in 1869 for her son, Hardinge Hay Cameron. It contains 112 miniature prints of her larger works - portraits of famous men, fair women, literary scenes and religious images.
