The ‘Evening News’ header has been blocked-in on the mimeograph stencil while the text has been cut with a typewriter. The paper bears a watermark ‘Roneo Bond’.

Captions to the illustrations are typescript pasted integral to the pictures. The photographs can in this way be seen as actual events of that week mechanically reproduced at the time. Captions set in type below the photos on these pages were easy to achieve but would have undermined the topical immediacy of the images. It demonstrated that old blocks of photographs from previous issues were not being passed off as current events;
