This is one of eight of photographs taken of Beatrix Potter in 1913 by Charles Y. King, a visitor from America. He sent Potter copies of the photographs along with a letter, writing: "it is a great pleasure to me to have had the opportunity of taking these photos." This photo was taken just a few months before Beatrix married William Heelis on October 14, 1913.
