Both items in good condition, with minor signs of age and wear. The black and white photographic print is 24.5 x 19.5 cm, and depicts a chubby Hall, in shirtsleeves and tie, leaning over a seat at the back of a darkened theatre, with a positive look of concentration on his face, as he stares at the stage, a playscript in his hand. The reverse carries two stamps by 'Tony Armstrong Jones, one of them declaring his copyright. Also on the reverse are pencil calculations of dimensions for cropping for publication. The invoice, on the printed letterhead of Armstrong Jones Ltd., is made out by Armstrong Jones to 'Mr Kitchin | 4, Park Hill, | Croons Hill, | S.E.10.' It charges five guineas 'Copyright Fee - | Peter Hall: 2756 - B 8' and 10s 6d for the '10 x 8 Print'. While the National Portrait Gallery possesses a portrait of Hall by Snowdon from 1981 (NPG P1881), the present image is not to be found in its collection.
