Thank you. I didn't; I stand corrected, and apologise.

However, I think the reason that I didn't see it is that it is
disconnected from the body of the page by two very long sections; one
(more than a screen deep on my machine) being a pink-backgrounded
solicitation for donations; the other an entreaty to join a  mailing
list. Neither relates to the subject of the article, and once I
reached them I assumed the article had ended. The large version of the
image, at the head of the page, neither mentions nor links to the
credits section.

Perhaps the page design needs to be revisited, to make the credits
section more apparent? Has any user testing of this aspect been

Is there a reason this open-licensed image had not been uploaded to
Wikimedia Commons? (I've now done so, as:
