far as we know it is the only one that exists. It was taken in about 1865 at Houghton Hall by a window on the garden side of the hall. The picture can be seen in our archive together with a description by clicking here
The Society obtained permission from Paul Frecker the copyright owner for it to be placed in our archive. Rob Brandreth Gibbs, who lives in Canada, said that he had never seen the picture before and was very grateful to us for pointing it out to him.
