Information from Braunschweig: "Arcs-Boutants de Chevet (côté Sud), papier ciré sec, procédé Le Gray, tiré sur papier salé. 1851 ou 1853, dates des deux campagnes photographiques de Le Secq à Notre-Dame de Paris, mais très probablement 1851 car la signature à l'encre sur l'épreuve est l'indice des premiers travaux de Le Secq. Sa présentation, son montage sur canson, sont les témoignages de la vénération quasi religieuse que Le Secq portrait aux recommandations de Le Gray, et que nous a signaleé Eugenia Janis."
