Thanks, but for those who haven't clicked it yet, lots of popups on that link.
I think the image of the Patent Leather Bar is in _The Camera_, if I remember correctly. If not there, than one of the other volumes of the Adams trilogy. It is a great architectural interior shot. I'm out of town at the moment and don't have the books handy, but as I recall he uses the image to demonstrate the technique of painting with light. To get some light under the long, curving bar, he or his assistant passed a floodlight along its length, or something like that.
I believe he also did a stint as a school portrait photographer.
