Scope and Content

Small black and white photograph of four men, each wearing a suit and hat, two with a walking stick, sitting around a table outside. Cut out by hand and pasted onto a page in the notebook with a hand drawn border of pink crayon. [Taken during a holiday in France.] Faded to a brownish tone, much of the image is not distinguishable.

The page opposite has a rhyming verse (manuscript), under the heading 'Solo: de Jouy'. Possibly a suggestion for scenery, or to illustrate a scene in the play where the two men meet at 'a Table on a ledge over the sea' (opposite page).

Physical Characteristics and/or Technical Requirements

Poor condition. Faded and yellowed badly . Surface badly damaged and patches of brown and grey, possibly mould growth. Much of the image indistinguishable. Stable, low priority. Extensive treatment needed. Production method: gelatin silver print.
