Glass plate negative of John Brown standing in full length and facing three-quarters to the left whilst holding the reigns of a white pony. He stands in front of a tree. Wooden fence in the background.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. A print of this work exists in the Collection, RCIN 2140255.
