Mounted albumen photograph, measuring 19.5 by 27 cm; light fading, a little bubbling near the centre.
Floyd was the only other European photographic pioneer in the Far East to rival 'Chinese Thomson'. 'In 1863-64, he worked as an assistant in the photography studio of Richard Shannon & Co., in Shanghai. Floyd moved to Macau to establish his own studio along the Praia Grande. In 1866-67 he joined the Hong Kong studio of Silveira & Co., soon becoming its owner' (Historical Photographs of China, online).
