    I think your speculation is probably right, since looking more closely at the blurb, it would appear to have a date and time at the end, that is to say 6-6-41 at 5.40pm. So I agree with your suggestion that the 15th June was probably the date the photo was received by the paper. There is also a small commentary attached in Spanish, which needs some translation.

      The touring of a Luftwaffe aircraft around the States at that time was part of a very determined campaign to 'nudge' Americans towards being sympathetic to the Brits, and thus inclined to support our war. Focus group research was conducted to evaluate what generated a constructive opinion among US voters. Of course, patently none of this was a patch on the nudge of Pearl Harbor.
