Detail from Walter Barnett's photograph of

 William Crooke

William Crooke, in December 1910 began his tour of the USA with Walter Barnett.  They met many photographers during this tour.

The photograph below is one that they presumably left for their hosts when they visited Chicago.  It was found recently, in a trunk in the attic of Mrs Gibson studio.  Mrs Gibson has a prominent portrait studio in Chicago.

Mrs Gibson knew MJ Steffens and other early Chicago studio photographers who are likely to have met Crooke on his tour.
