For a similar view of this group, see Y305D/59. See also Y305D/81, a group portrait which includes a bearded figure whom, according to the original typescript catalogues, is also in this photograph and may be the unidentified compiler of these albums, although the two men identified as such in all three prints do not appear to be one and the same.
