Glass plate negative of a full length group portrait of Royal Park Keepers pictured outside, with, from right to left: Henry Austin; Thomas Foker with donkey and cart; George Smith; Thomas Foster (d. 1890); Sampson Strickland; John Orme; and John Cole who holds a dog and guns. All wear top hats.

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 2907100.
