Edmund Bracher; Portrait of Alfred Earle (b. c. 1840) or George Norsworthy (b. c. 1838), in the uniform of the Oxford University Volunteer Rifle Corps; albumen print; “1859”

This photograph is labelled with the autograph “G. Norsworthy” on a scrap of paper under the print. However, the same man is identified as Alfred Earle in other photographs of members of the Rifle Corps.
