Photograph of an interior view of the small library in Frogmore House. The photograph shows a view of Princess Victoria, Duchess of Kent's (1786-1861) table. The table is laid with numerous framed works and decorative objects. On a side table, to the right, are further framed works and a marble cast of a hand. In the background are a variety of paintings including a portrait of Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII (1841-1910) (possibly a copy of RCIN 401022).
