    i don't know when I acquired this 8x10. The cellophane packet says "Tom Helmore", and the same is written on the back of the photo itself ... but it's not him is it?

    My guess is that someone wrote on the back of the photo because of the name on the pack, and that was from a different photo ... Or am I mad?

    I reckon that is a young Tom Helmore. I was going to post a photo from google images but I keep getting an invalid file message!

    I was so convinced it wasn't him that I didn't really entertain the notion of it possibly just being a very young portrait ... Since Wadsy's post I've gone deeper into Google and still can't really find a likeness. This portrait from much later shows a similar face, but the nose, the chin, that lower lip ... Is it just time's passing? I still can't see Helmore in the original picture ...

    He looks more like Douglass Montgomery to me.
