Given that the double photo is undated, the best estimate of the date in which it was taken is 4 Oct 1957 on the basis that Khai found it beside a photo negative of 鍾廷勤 with an identical hairstyle but casually dressed in a shirt whose long sleeves had been rolled up to just above his albows. The photo negative is of the same cropping and of the same size as each half of the double photo, and has been kept in a small brown paper bag with a handwritten date of 4/10/57.

The mounting of two such similar photographs side by side may suggest that they were intended to achieve a three-dimensional effect when viewed through a stereoscopic viewer, if in fact they were taken from slightly different horizontal viewpoints. However, the relative misalignment of the two images would probably not be conducive to achieving this effect.
