This photograph was included in the exhibition Victoria & Albert: Art & Love at The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace, until 31 October 2010.
 
Purchased by Queen Victoria.
 
In 2010 this photograph was uploaded to flickr by The British Monarchy.
 
The text on the Royal Collection website (www.royalcollection.org.uk) describes this remarkable photograph (Accesssed: 6 Aug 2010):
 
The simplicity and directness of this photograph make it one of the most striking examples of nineteenth century photography in existence. It shows the bullet hole on the target, created by Queen Victoria when she fired the fixed Whiteworth Rifle at a distance of 400 yards.
