"During the trial of Reuben Bigland before Mr Justice Darling," the photographer Wllliam R. Turner recalled, "I was in court with a small camera. In order to keep it firm for a time exposure I stuck it to a panel with some putty. Seeing two officials coming towards me I hastily took it down. To reach the door I would have to pass the two officials. I tried to look as innocent as I could, but they barred my progress. 'You mustn't do that here you know,' one of them whispered. 'Do what?' I countered. 'Take photos.' 'Oh really. Isn't it allowed then?' 'No.' 'Then it's no use my staying then,' I said and left the court taking my photograph with me."
