Glass plate negative of a full-length double portrait of Lieutenant Colonel Francis G.H. Seymour and his son Hugh, seated next to each other on a stone bench. A top hat rests alongside Francis Seymour on the left. Photograph taken at Osborne House.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. A print from this negative exists in the Collection, RCIN 2906541.
