This object is part of Schaaf no. 4436

A bridge

There is a very faint image of a section of a bridge featuring double columns between each arch, just discernible in digitally enhanced images. The twin columns imply it is possibly the first Waterloo Bridge, which Talbot had photographed elsewhere.
