The Stones in Milan, 8th April 1967. Some adjustments being made to Brian Jones's Supreme. One of the men in picture may be Alan Harding, chief engineer at Vox.

Harding accompanied the Stones on the part of their 1967 European tour to monitor the Supremes and the ceramic Celestions in the speaker cabs.
