In Negative - The negative has been cut very crudely, especially down the right hand edge of the image. 'B-17' has been written across the top in blue-black ink [MS 29/06/2006]
Notes on print/mount - One contact print made from this negative is contained in A. J. Hopkinson's negative case with the negative. The print appears to have been removed from an album, as there are traces of black mounting paper around the edges of the print as if it has been taken out after previously being glued in place. A partially decipherable caption has been written on the back in pencil: "[?] Pass - Febry 21st 1927 about 5 p.m.". 'H 12' has also been written on the back. The number 1 has been written on the front top right corner in pencil. [MS 29/06/2006]
