Photograph of an overhead view of the theatre in Coburg. The theatre is surrounded by other buildings. A forest-covered hillside can be seen in the background, on the left.

This is one of a series of photographs that were commissioned by Queen Victoria to be presented to her husband Prince Albert on his birthday in August 1857. Bedford, accompanied by his wife, travelled to Coburg in June and early July to photograph the places associated with the Prince's childhood.
