The following images are  horizontally reversed

Image 18 - Check the writing on the wall panels

Image 21 - Check the location of the organ. I'm in that picture, one of the choir members but I can't identify where.

Does anyone know the names of the people in the photos?

Thanks Victor - you're right - those images don't look quite right, I'll have to check the originals
