Added to which, any analysis of the photos, digital or otherwise, is based on 
the original 1917 photos - no one can say what emulsions or filters were used. 
Anyone who has done B+W photography knows how much you can change apparent 
tones by using filters, exposure, light etc etc.

Does anyone know if the original negative still exists, or are we looking at 
prints and copies of prints (even more scope for variation in tones/shades)
