Keys to History
And here we have the results after Notman's art department has finished with Miss Legge. Now she's standing in a snowbank with a howling wind blowing her scarf and skirt hem, and the background has been enhanced with a fence and some more snow. The string has been cleverly blotted out by retouching.
