Catalogue Note

By an unnamed photographer, the images include lovely landscape views, as well as exterior views of the principal buildings in Nice, Cannes, Mentone, San Remo, Antibes, Villafranca, Monte Carlo, and along the coasts of France and Monaco.  The album can be dated before 1878 by the views of the Casino de Monte Carlo, as the images show the casino prior to the 1878 expansion by Charles Garnier.
