Spot the ball and the man
by Richard Overy
This photograph (measuring 5.25 x 3.5″) was found in a Shropshire antique shop. The reverse reads ‘You can see me first over the ink dot’. The ink dot is clear enough in the centre of the photograph. I’m not sure of the location although the majority of the spectators are in uniform and the background looks like a dock so perhaps they are sailors. The ball seems to be in the air above the industrial building towards the centre.
