Other Information - Related Images

Other Information - Related Images: Bell does not distinguish between 1998.285.122 and 1998.285.123 in his List of Illustrations and both images may be referenced by the caption for H.106. 1998.285.123 appears to be the original image, 1998.285.122 being a re-photograph of this, which has cropped the borders and zoomed in slightly on the group.

Technical Information - The lantern slide has been made by projecting the image from 1998.285.123 through an enlarger. [MS 20/5/2004]
