Condition: See description

Collingwood, Victoria: Allan, 1896. Albumen print of the Mr. & Mrs. Booth laid on to cabinet card. The couple were leaders of the Australian Salvation Army in the late 1890's; over time Herbert Booth came to the conclusion that the government of the Salvation Army was in need of radical reform and decentralization; unable to effect the change, the couple resigned in 1902. The albumen print of the couple, both in uniform, framed within an ornate shield, with two crossed flags, the left one inscribed "Fire" and the right one "Blood", and a crown at the top, with an inscription on it: "Holiness Unto the Lord". Allan (photographer) with printed address, 318 Smith Street, Collingwood, at the base. 6 1/2 in. x 4 1/4 in. Very good condition.
