Glass plate negative showing two full length portraits of Dr Ernst Becker, seated, at Osborne. The image on the right has been scratched out. 

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. A print from this negative does not seem to exist in the Collection.
