Glass plate negative of a full length portrait of Jane Keir standing with her back facing the camera. She poses in front of a wall. She wears a light coloured shirt and a skirt with dark coloured stripes.

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  2160086.
