Remarks

The dates for this photograph and Key Set numbers 1262 and 1263 are based on similarities to other prints dated 1929. Like other series from this year, such as HH1–3 (Key Set numbers 1258–1260) and Equivalents W1–5 (Key Set numbers 1277–1281), set K is composed of a symmetrical sequence of similar images.
