Glass plate negative of a full length portrait of Margaret Monroe crouching, facing halfway to the left. She looks ahead, away from the camera. She holds a light coloured sheet with both hand in front of her. She wears a light coloured shirt and dark coloured skirt. 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 2160082.
