Note to Hamlet, 3.4.53: "Look here, upon this picture, and on this"

Hamlet,
Act 3, Scene 4, line 53
Look here, upon this picture, and on this: There are two pictures, one of Hamlet's father, and the other of Hamlet's step-father. Where did they come from? In performance, this difficulty is often solved by having Hamlet and his mother each wear a locket containing the appropriate pictures.
