In Negative - 'B-5' has been written on the left side of the negative 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: "[??] from Champithang towards Rinchengong Febry 8th 1927. Clouds rolling up". The number 10 has been written on the front top right corner in pencil. [MS 29/06/2006]
