Agreed. Very odd...but he would have been in India then so maybe there was some reason for it there? I don't know. Grasping at straws here.

I agree. It doesn't look like any other image of him before or after. It's distinctly odd but maybe he had to shave his head for some reason like lice.

This photo was taken in 1921, 9 years before
his death in an RTA in 1929, there is no getting
around that very distinctive lantern jaw!.

The original was on EBay, the last copy of the same image i posted, I had cropped of his whiskers.
The seller claims its Smith?

What's annoying is, I can no longer find the painting.

So the question still remains is it Our man?
