Together with a 1/4 plate ambrotype taken outdoors in June 1859, of  Emily Medcalf in a striped dress, standing behind a seated elderly gentleman. The plate is rather dark, with graining to many areas of the emulsion. It is mounted in a blind embossed full leather case (96 x 122mm, with hinge repair). Under the plate is a printed paper insert with the handwritten inscription "Emily Medcalf, M.A.Drew [?], Mar.6/59"
