Glass plate negative of a full length portrait of a horse and a groom, shown in profile. The groom stands on the right, facing towards the horse. He holds the horse by the bridle. There is a brick building in the background.

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 2917902.
