It is a 1918 production still from a Paramount Silent film with Buster Keaton, directed by Roscoe Arbuckle, so there is a good chance you can still get a reasonable quality 8x10 (or 10x8) online somewhere.

You might find the unit photographer's name in a history of Paramount or similar obscure book, but the most direct answer can probably be had by posing your question on the UseNet group alt.movies.silent.
