A place for show-and-tell, wondering aloud, and wandering the trails of curiosity . . . Comments, corrrections, additional information, fresh insights, other interpretations, more images, or related observations will be welcomed!
Relatively few backmarks are in color.
Some photographers advertised dual careers, as does this one. Quite a few did portrait paintings, often based on (or even painting on top of) photographs they made. Other dual careers I have seen are photographer + artificial fly tyer / watchmaker / chemist / stair builder / dentist / agent for the Singer sewing machine / job printer
