Glass plate negative of a three-quarter length portrait of Thomas Batchelor (c.1768-1868) seated, facing three-quarters to the right. He looks towards the camera. At the time of the photograph Bachelor was Page of the Back Stairs.

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 2906736.
