Glass plate negative of a full length portrait of Frank Farquarson seated on a wooden chair, facing the camera front on. He poses with his arms crossed in front of his waist, and his legs crossed. He wears a cap, jacket, waistcoat, kilt and sporran. He poses in front of a stone wall. Photograph taken at Balmoral.

Frank Farquarson was son of Peter Farquarson (RCIN 2160095).

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 2160094.
