This photograph accompanied Buchanan’s contribution to the ‘My First Book’ feature in The Idler of May 1893. The article (available on this site) also included several photos of the interior of the house. The larger version of the photo below makes it easier to make out Buchanan’s mother standing on his right, and Harriett Jay seated on his left.
