Images from Algiers, Constantine, and Oran photographed between 1856-1857 and most likely printed in the 1860s.
Félix Jacques Moulin, photographer of genre subjects, nudes, landscapes, and monuments, was active in Paris in the 1850s-1870s. In 1856-1857 Moulin traveled in Algeria with the express purpose of producing a photographic oeuvre of the region. Moulin returned from Algeria with approximately 448 negatives, 300 of which he published in six volumes entitled "L'Algérie photographique" (1858). He and his family printed and sold images from this group throughout the late 1850s-1860s, and they were also used as illustrations in both photographic journals and the popular press.
