Presentation of Diplodocus in the former Reptile Gallery. 12 May 1905 (PH/3/1/807)

Black and white photograph showing the official presentation event in the former Reptile Gallery. The Diplodocus cast is on a low plinth along the centre of the room facing away from the photographer. The model is surrounded by a large amount of staff and dignitaries (may be more than 200), some sitting and some standing. No specific individual can be made out from the crowd, with those nearest to the photographer standing with their back facing and in morning suits.
