With a printed mimeo snipe affixed to the verso, along with the stamps of Interfoto MTI and PIX agency. From the archive of the PIX Agency, a photo house that acted as an intermediary between emigre photographers (as well as those still living in Europe) and the American magazine and newspaper market between 1935-1969.

A short educational television film for the "Shaping of the Western World" series, reenacting the events of July 14, 1789, the day a group of French revolutionaries stormed the Bastille in response to decades of political abuse and the monarchy's neglect.
