Other Information - Dates: This image can be related to a group of 13 images which have contact prints with the batch development number '512 taken on, before or just after the Talung tour in May 1939. This batch number relates also to the 512 Black for 21 6x9 images suggesting that by this time Richardson was using two cameras and that the batch numbers can also correlate with each other across print sizes [MS 17/12/2005]
