In Negative - 'A17' has been written on the top edge of the negative in black ink. The negative has been machine perforated along the top edge. 18 holes have been perforated in total although some have been cropped. There are a further six perforations along the bottom edge, possibly made by pins rather than a machine. These have been marked with a pen and what appears to be '171' has been written twice adjacent to these perforations in large figures on the reverse of the negative [MS 05/05/2006]
