© Crown Copyright. Printed by Larkfield Printing Co. Ltd. Two different shots taken moments apart were published as postcards. Both have the same reference number. On this version, the woman is looking at the warder and five people can be seen in total. On the other version, there are just three figures and the woman is looking at the camera. Curiously, the clock shows exactly the same time in both.
