Osaekomi with knee on shoulder

Cool old photo of some jiujitsu women applying a pin similar to some of the pins we worked on last night in aikido.  Notice that tori has secured uke's wrist to her own thigh and has placed her knee on top of uke's shoulder.  Also notice the head is immobilized.  I wonder what role the overturned chair in the background played in the technique?
