Most of the photos, including the cover one, were taken by Rankin in the mid-nineties, for promotional purposes. Some of them were used in the booklet for the "Southpaw Grammar" LP. The photo in bath with glitter was taken by Linder. Many different takes are also found in the cd booklet, although only one is displayed here. The Linder photo of Morrissey and band members used on the "That's Entertainment" promo cd (info here for "Suedehead-The Best Of Morrissey") is also found inside the booklet.
