Glass plate  negative of a three-quarter length portrait of Lady Jane Churchill (1826-1900), standing, facing halfway to the left. She holds a hat in front of her body. She poses in front of a stone wall. Photograph taken at Balmoral.

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 2906669.
