Crown Princess Vicky’s Berlin & Potsdam c1870
Princess Victoria (Vicky), the eldest child of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, married Prince Frederick of Prussia in 1858. The volumes of letters between mother and daughter first published in the 1960s were fascinating for historians and readers. For years similar images of the Queen and Vicky’s family, both formal and informal, were reproduced. Photographs of the palaces in Berlin and Potsdam during the 1860s and 1870s are rare.
