The border of Llewelyn's image is a photogram of ferns, a clever variation on the decorative borders of lace, cut paper, or ink and watercolor that embellished many nineteenth-century albums. In the central vignette we see the photographer's daughter Thereza (1834-1926), with her books, botanical specimens, and scientific apparatus. [label for Gilman IV]
