Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Hello, I am researching this albumen print of - possibly Karnak or the Temple of Mediate Habu. (Correct me if I am mistaken). What interests me is the photographer's monogram, lower left. At one point, I was thinking it may be Frank Mason Good, but would appreciate some expert opinions.
Has anyone seen this monogram before?

Yes, I agree with Juan and Nissan. It is Good's monogram, not such a commonly used one. There is another example of this mark (and some other Good signatures/imprints) published in my book - Odalisques and Arabesques.
Hi, I have studied the work of Good, especially made during his visit to Spain. I've never seen that anagram, but Good was very fond of anagrams, and sometimes adopted a different anagram depending on the country visited, as it did in Spain. The initials are clearly F. M. G, therefore I think that the author of the photograph is Fran Mason Good. Best regards.

Hi, Indeed this is the small temple of Karnak at Thebes. The monogram seems to be Good's, yet if possible I would like to see a sharp image of it to be able to confirm. Regards, Nissan
