    curiouser and curiouser ain't it? Same kids & background but a narrower frame. Did Brady's studio copy Wilson's work?
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    Rhetorical question, so if it were faked by Brady's gang for Brady is it still an original Brady...?

    I guess years from now historians will be trying to figure out "is it Richard Prince or Jim Krantz?" whenever someone finds an old cigarette ad in the attic...

    In keeping with true internet speculation and non-substantiated opinion, I wonder who got the $30,000, the deceased owner??

    New York collector Keya Morgan said he paid $30,000 for the photo album including the photo of the young boys and several family pictures and $20,000 for the sale document. Morgan said the deceased owner of the home where the photo was found was thought to be a descendant of John [boy in picture?].
    And why fake a sale? Well, maybe a museum would pay you what you have invested in a piece:

    Morgan said, he is keeping the photo in his personal collection, but he said he has had an inquiry to sell the photo to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
