Photograph of a view of the Ballroom at Balmoral Castle. In the foreground is a set of six chairs, placed beside a multi-panel, mirrored wall. The wall reflects a view of a staircase and window. Above the wall and chairs is an arch decorated with stags heads.

This photograph is a later carbon copy of the original albumen photograph. Carbon was a process that was less susceptible to fading, unlike an albumen print that is prone to discolouration over time.
