John Brown (1827-83)

Glass plate negative of a near full length portrait of John Brown seated, facing a quarter to the right. He gazes ahead, away from the camera. He poses with his hands on his hips. He wears a kilt and cap and is seated 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 2906903.
