Other Information - Dates: This photograph was probably taken on the second or subsequent day of the performance as there is a canopy over the stage, which Bell states in his diary of 5th August was not present on the first day [MS 11/8/2004]
Other Information - Related Images: Bell does not distinguish in his List of Illustrations entry between 1998.286.139.1 and 1998.286.139.2, although they are different images, and both may be referenced by the caption for Q.129 [MS 11/8/2004]
