Glass plate negative of a full length portrait of Marguerite Stewart standing, facing slightly towards the left. She looks ahead, away from the camera. She poses with her arms behind her back. She wears a light coloured shirt, the sleeves rolled up, a 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 2160085.
