Other Information - Dates

Other Information - Dates: This was possibly taken in c.1948. There is a group of 4 images with the same contact print batch number but with a couple of inconsistencies between them - namely that some don’t have a paper brand stamp, that one has been printed out as a 6x4.5 image and the brand stamps appear slightly different where they can be seen and so the dating of this image is somewhat conjectural. However, some of the prints have '1948' written by hand on the back [MS 19/12/2005]
