A carte de visite self-portrait, depicting the photographer 'dozing' peacefully in a high-backed padded armchair

Bernard Goode (1834-1897) was active in South Australia at the address printed on the verso of the card (69 Rundle Street, Adelaide) between 1864 and 1874. Davies and Stanbury ('The Mechanical Eye in Australia. Photography, 1841-1900') devote two pages to Goode's penchant for novelty images, in particular multiple-image photography, where two or more different negatives of the one individual are combined in the one print (see pages 56-57). The mount and the surface of the print are a little marked; overall a decent example of a rare item.
