Other Information - Related Images: It has been possible to date and identify the location of this image by comparing it with two very similar images, taken moments apart from this one, in the Nepean collection in the PRM [2001.35.40.1] and the Philip Neame loan material at the PRM [2006.1.32.2 & 2006.1.32.3]. However, none of these images is identical with that in the album seen here [MS 25/08/2006]
