Since the English title is ｡ View of the Battery on the Glover's Bungalow, it is clear that there was a battery at Glover House. Thomas Glover is sitting on the stone on the left. It appears that Beato carefully instructed each person as to where they should be and the composition of the photo, the poses, and timing are well orchestrated. The atmosphere of the end of the Edo era where the weapons had a say can be felt from the photo. -6157-
