I (John Wexler, 1998) do not know where the original (left-hand version above) of this photograph is. The right-hand version shows a copy which Gwyneth Wexler has. It is in a rather unusual form: photographic emulsion on an opaque white glass base. The edges of the plate have been broken off, leaving a rough oval about 4x6cm, with the image in the centre. In the same form, there are photographs of Moses Morris (I also have a better copy of that picture) and an unidentified Morris son. All three pictures were probably mounted together in some frame or ornament, some time around 1910-1920.
