The image is extremely faint in the original, although there is sharp detail, including one remarkable feature: a sentry, just visible in the original outside the sentry box to the right of centre, who for his patience in standing still for what must have been nearly twenty minutes, is quite possibly the earliest person to be recorded on a photograph.
