Studio Postcard of Basil Gill
This is a portrait of a man facing slightly to the left, and looking directly into the camera. He is wearing a light colored wool fabric suit, vest, with a white collared shirt and a black bow tie. His hair is dark and a single bang falls above his right brow, on the left side of the image. It is not clear whether he is smiling or not. The photographer has utilized some form of fading in the image to make the lines seem softer. At the very bottom, in the white border space of the car, the actor’s name appears in the center: “Mr. Basil Gill.” On the left, the series number and publisher: “1199A Rotary Photo E.C.” And on the right of the name, there is the photographer: “L. Caswell Smith.”
