WHY DOES THIS NOT HAVE MORE NOTES
My gratitude to generous reader Julia, who has sent in a far, far clearer copy of a photograph I have featured before, the wonderful Oscar Wilde with Lord Alfred Douglas - I’m happy to include it again as the improvement is so marked, a scan so sharp we can even see the laces in their boots.
With the picture came this observation, pointing out something I had never noticed before, and you may find interesting :
"I’m intrigued by the bangle Bosie wears on his left wrist, which is also evident in other pictures from the same session, as I’ve never seen any other photos of a man from this era wearing such an item of jewellery."
Just minutes after I shared this, a dear knowledgeable reader has pointed me towards their own post on the matter of the bangle, which turns out to have a truly touching significance : read it here
Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.
