Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

Up for your perusal today is a CdV from England made by Hills & Saunders in Oxford and other locations. The back of the card states “by appointment to Her Majesty” although I don’t know how accurate that is. I previously featured another photographer who had a similar statement and it turned out he had photographed some distant relative of the Queen.

This man is lounging in what might actually be an uncomfortable chair. You notice he is sitting on a tasseled pillow. He is also holding the newspaper or other papers. His suit looks to be of tweed and his facial hair is bushy. Do you picture him sitting at a desk in an office or striding across the fields looking for grouse or whatever it is people hunt.

    The photography studio still exists.

    I wonder if the dude had hemorrhoids?
