Photograph adhered to paper support of Windsor Castle as seen from the Brocas on the north banks of the River Thames. On the left of the foreground are a group of children, standing and seated on a grassy bank, most of whom look to their left towards the river where a small ferry boat where a boy is seated is moored. A building stands on the left of the middle ground with a tree growing on the far left. The Round Tower and Curfew Tower of Windsor Castle are visible in the background.
