Photograph of the Middle and Lower Wards of Windsor Castle with St George's Chapel on the right and the Military Knight's residences on the left.

Fenton produced a set of at least thirty-one views of Windsor Castle and Home Park in the summer of 1860, as a commercial enterprise rather than a royal commission. This photograph includes (at the bottom of the hill) a seventeenth-century range which was demolished a few years after the photograph was taken.
