Jekyll and Hyde -- June 9, 2012

Henry Van Der Weyde was a son of Doctor Peter Henri Van Der Weyde. After service in the American Civil War, Henry emigrated to England, where he became a pioneer in taking photographs using artificial light.  Van Der Weyde took this photo of actor Richard Mansfield, the first person to play Robert Louis Stevenson's Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde on stage.
