Large studio photograph in a wonderful tan leather frame. The studio photograph, full length, is of a standing young man/schoolboy, his arms folded, wearing pale short sleeved sports vest with white trousers and shoes, subject unknown. He is stood with a wooden panelled background and the photo is signed 'A.D.Kissack, Eton'. Alfred D. Kissack was a photographer based at 130 High Street, Eton, Windsor from around 1899 until 1915.
Lanhydrock House (National Trust), Bodmin, Cornwall (Accredited Museum) has a brown/dark purple leather photograph album with heavy brass clasp containing photographs of Eton school boys in a very similar pose. The photos in the album are half length but the sitters have their arms folded, wear the same tops and are also by A. D. Kissack.
