Glass plate negative of a full length portrait of Jane Keir standing, facing slightly towards the right. She looks ahead, away from the camera. She stands with her arms crossed. She wears a light coloured shirt, dark coloured skirt and is barefoot. 

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 2160084.
