I think everybody would be interested in a photo showing Elisabeth and Louisa together. But I don't think that we will find one.  :(
Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

Eric, I was wrong!  ;) I just searched for photos of Elisabeth of T&T in the so-called "Zettelkatalog" of the Bildarchiv in Vienna. They have only six photos of her, but one pictures shows Elisabeth together with her sister Louisa.
The photo has a "NB number" which means that somebody has already ordered a copy of this photo.

So, let's go to Vienna!  :D

Marie, what do you mean with Vienna and Zettelkatalog?

It is possible to visit the Bildarchiv of the Nationalbibliothek in Vienna. There you can look at rare CDVs of almost everybody. On the website of the Nationalbibliothek you can read the descriptions of the photos under the category "Zettelkatalog".  ;)

Yes, I've been there.  :D Everybody at the Bildarchiv is very nice and tries to help you. The amount of money you have to pay for copies depends on the size. Copies which have a NB number, which means that someone else has already bought a copy of a certain CDV, are much cheaper than copies of CDVs that don't have such a number.

That's really a pity. As you are interested in the T&T family, you might prefer to go to St. Emmeram?  ;)
