A copy of this photograph appears in the preface to 'A History Of The Lad=
Guild ' by Janet Stevenson (ISBN:0-9536869-0-6. 1999). The caption reads
'Unknown Lady Ringer (?) in the Hagbourne, Berks tenor, 1909 (Warning: Do
not try this in your home tower). The photo was taken from English
Bell-Ringing in The Country Home 1909 p130.

The book is well worth reading and thank Heaven the Ladies voted in 1999 =
the continued existence of the Guild (the vote was unanimous).
