The albumen print, also called albumen silver print, was invented in 1850 by Louis Désiré Blanquart-Evrard , and was the first commercially exploitable method of producing a photographic print on a paper base from a negative . It used the albumen found in egg whites to bind the photographic chemicals to the paper and became the dominant form of photographic positives from 1855 to the turn of the century, with a peak in the 1860-90 period. During the mid-1800s, the carte de visite became one of the more popular uses of the albumen method. In the 19th century, E. & H. T. Anthony & Company were the largest makers and distributors of the Albumen photographic prints and paper in the United States.galery51

If there is a registration pin, this is also part of the movement. Sometimes the shutter can also be considered part of the movement.
