One photograph or two?

There are two prints of the same subject (Lorina Liddell by Lewis Carroll), but I'm not sure if I'm seeing two different prints of the very same negative or they are two similar, but distinct shots of the same subject.

To help you examine the situation, I made a little comparison website. Just hover/tap on the coloured buttons and observe the differences:

Please explain any differences/similarities you see in the two images, possbly including these questions:

  • are the two prints originate from the same negative?
  • is she standing or sitting in the small oval picture?
  • is the visible amount and quality of the sandstone wall in the background enough to determine that they show exactly the same surface and the relative position of Lorina to it?

Those are obviously two different photographs. The position of her right hand differs significantly between the two pictures.
