Album compiled by an unknown French maker, possibly hailing from Amélie-les-Bains-Palalda, as the first three photographs
in the album are from that town.This album of albumen prints contains images that show the influence of French colonialism in Cambodia during the 1890s. While
the album begins with three views of Amélie-les-Bains-Palalda, France, the remainder of the images focus on Cambodia and its
western colonization. There are approximately 34 images and one map (entitled "Cochinchine et Cambodge") that document the
land, buildings, people, and celebrations of Cambodia during this time period. 16 of the images focus on pagodas and palaces,
13 on indigenous people and their occupations (including soldiers, elephant drivers, Buddhist monks, and carriers), and five
show celebrations. Included are three images of the inauguration of the Silver Pagoda on 1 January 1894 and seven images of
the Fête de Norodom (King of Cambodia) on 17 February 1894.
