Glass plate negative of Napoleon III (1808-73) and Eugénie de Montijo, then Empress Consort of the French (1826-1920) boarding a boat off a jetty. There are three boats around the jetty. Men on the boats hold up their oars. Photograph taken at Osborne, Isle of Wight.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. Prints from this negative exist in the Collection (e.g. RCIN 2800783 & 2917848)
