Photograph of a man being held by Garda D.249 at a police station.
Photograph of a man being held by Garda D.249 at a counter in a police station. The man stands in the centre of the photo, with his back to the camera. Garda D.249, standing on the left, holds on to his arm, just above the elbow. The garda's ID code is visible on his collar. He is in full uniform, including hat. Another Garda, D.12, stands on the other side of the counter. His ID code is also visible. He is in uniform without a hat. He looks at papers and a book on the counter. A grandfather clock stands against a wall in the right back/midground. The IDs on Gardaí's collars are as they would appear in a mirror suggesting that the photograph has been flipped. Perhaps the negative was developed from the wrong side.
