Cards based on photographs taken on the same day

© Crown Copyright. Printed by S.W. Sharman and Co. Ltd. Two different shots taken moments apart were published as postcards. Both have the same reference number. On this version, there are just three figures and the woman is looking at the camera. On the other version, the woman is looking at the warder and there are two additional figures in the background. Curiously, the clock shows exactly the same time in both.
