An Appreciation (continued)
The fellow in image 85 mocks pompous nobility. When we showed the picture to another man for identification, he said: ‘It can’t be Scotty Wright. He was a valley man. There’s no way you’d find a man like him perched up on the top of a mountain.’ Perhaps. But a photograph can easily make a mountain out of a minor promontory. Looking at the photo below (image 86), we may wonder if that was the joke Scotty was in on.
