Cabinet Card of "Mount Austin Hotel - In Memoriam" marking the closure of the Hotel at the turn of the year 1897/1898

Date picture taken
31 Dec 1897


It is a typical cabinet card (16,2 x 10,7 cm), albumin print (very thin photograph) mounted on a card; black reverse; no publisher or photographer given. I think it was given as a gift to the last guests at the hotel before it was closed down - "In Memoriam". (Must have been a posh place to stay. Too remote? Too expensive?)
