Copy of an original carte de visite featuring a vignette portrait (left) and a studio portrait (right) of Colonel Thomas Rawlings Mould of the Royal Engineers. In the first photographed portrait (left), Mould appears from the chest up, looking to his left. Dressed in military unifrom, Mould wears a high collar and tie beneath a high-collared undercoat with buttons. His curly greying hair is styled into a side part, and he dons sideburns and a styled, dark moustache. In the second photographed portrait (right), Mould appears facing forward-right, dressed in military uniform. In his right hand he holds his gloves and hat. To his side, on the left of the photograph, stands a table, atop which sits an open book. He appears standing on a patterned studio floor. The photograph is included on page 51 of William Francis Robert Gordon's album "Some "Soldiers of the Queen" who served in the Maori Wars and Other Notable Persons Connected Herewith".
