Who took this photo?

Hi all, one for the brains trust...


Does anyone know who took this photo? I've found hundreds of examples floating around the interwebs, but none with credit... Any ideas?


Thanks, Nick

Looks like a grab from an "Our Gang" movie.

It looks like a Roger Mayne type photo, 1950s, early 1960s Gt Britain or Ireland type locale.

It could be by any photographer from that time and location.

I may be wrong on this, but was not there a way to do a Google search to find out more info just by the photo alone?

Like a reverse search sort of thing?

Yes, you can do a reverse image search. Unfortunately this has only shown the hundreds of blogs and tumblrs and pinterest accounts that have reposted the photo without credit...

Tineye.com does a reverse image search for other webpages hosting the photo. Just did that and with a cursory glance there is no image attribution to any photographer. Good call on Roger Mayne, it certainly reminds his photographs, although a google search of his photos doesn't bring this one up.

Thanks for the suggestion. I can't find this particular photo but really enjoyed looking through his work.
