Early image of a nun - wet plate collodion #2

One of five superb wet plate collodion portraits of nuns found within a larger batch of dry plate negatives. Dating these is tricky as the fashions don't exactly help, but aside from tintypes the wet plate colldion process had largely vanished by about 1890 so there is a strong sense these are likely to be no later than that.
