Image of Le Château de Chambord in Chambord, Centre-Val de Loire, France, with a row of trees in front.

There is a pencil notation in the left margin, likely made by Talbot to indicate which side was sensitized.

On the verso, written in ink, is "Chambord". Written in pencil, in a different hand, is "(Lady Elisabeth's writing)".
