Pictures are funny things

Pictures of Conan Doyle vary hugely in how much they are sought after.....

If you go onto eBay you can find a fairly substantial number and variety of pictures of the great man yet the ones that go for the most money are not the ones that you might imagine.

Photos such as those seen here tend to be quite affordable. Yet one of the most expensive I've ever tried to secure was one of Conan Doyle at a Spiritualist bazaar in Manchester where he was almost lost amongst a sea of ladies. Bidding for said photograph had reached about $60 by the time I backed out.

I guess it comes down to rarity.....*sigh*
