Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
"21 x 16.5 cm photo on a 37 x 29.5 cm mount.
I am assuming that this was published in "Gems of Photographic Art" by Frith.
My attempts to find a copy online have been fruitless. The George Eastman House and The Ransom Center apparently have copies, but neither is digitized.
I have many questions about this image:
Is the photographer Claudius E. Goodman? He is referenced here on this site, but as a stereoscopic photographer.
This genre scene seems to me, to be a cut above most. Was this his only large scale photo? Why ? The busy composition reminds me of Don Quixote by William Frederick Lake Price.
Is this an enlargement of a stereo view scene? The vertical composition seems to indicate, no.
Thanks in advance for any info- or guesses.
