In the Mason collection this image is entitled “unknown man”, but it appears to be a distinguished gentleman from the nobility in the middle ages? Who was he, and why did Mr. Mason have him in his collection?
There was some really great work done last week and it was a joy to watch it develop and illuminate the dark corners of our ancient photographs. Thank you all for your involvement and commitment!
