Image 2 - What Is I?
This strange (and quite risque for c. 1910) image is apparently a reprint;
the caption at the bottom is typeset while the signature is hand-written like
most of Otto's postcards. Perhaps it was printed for J. E. Standley, proprietor
of Ye Olde Curiosity Shop on Colman Dock.
We do not know the name of the boy (or girl).
A late 1920s or 1930s copy of this photo does have the logo of Ye Olde Curiosity
This is apparently a copy of an earlier photo; the scratches and dirt in the
image are not on the card itself.
