I want more! I want photos and drawings of the great man plastered on my walls rather than just as simulacra in the mould on the plaster.

Can we have a central repository of royalty free images (drawings or photos) of him. I'd happiliy host it. I just want to make his face more recognised as I proselytize amongst the dim, damned and deluded.

I once found an old photo of a random man in a market in London that I thought bore more than a passing resemblance to Fort. Probably wasn't but you never know. If I can find a scan, I'll put it on here.

I think it may be the moustache and glasses combo that fooled me, rather than facial similarity (Fort was chubbier and appears to have had thicker, darker hair. He also had pronounced eyebrows).

I see the resemblance, but it's mainly from the grooming style and the pince-nez.

Fort was born in 1874. He didn't travel overseas until he was 18 (circa 1892 or 1893).

The photographer J. E. (John Edward) Bliss died - and his studio stock was sold off - in summer 1885, before Fort's 11th birthday.

Mind you Fort did look like the usual photos of him since he was 11. Seriously he was middle aged in appearance by about 15!
