    I do not; never seen this. They don't seem very true to life if the third from left in back is Ralph Erskine (I mean true to the portraits I've seen) and a couple of the seated ones could be Ebenezer, but given his senior status of the group I would guess he is center.

    I have never seen this photo! I have searched and searched with no success for a photo of James Fisher. I will ask Dr. Vandoodewaard if he recognizes any of them as being Fisher.

    Thanks; I met Bill and heard him speak a couple of times when he was in Belfast a couple of years ago.

    An excellent find, Ed. Thanks very much.

    I cheated. I already had them from research I did when publishing a version of Fisher' s Catechism. I had to pay about a hundred fifty bucks for James Fisher though because his images are very rare.

    note: If anyone does want a copy of Fisher's be sure to use the discount code of PBFISHER and get 30% off. This is only for PB members.

    It has been bugging me as I knew I had seen this photo previously with the individuals named. Alas! Here we are!

    When compared to Ed's, the two do not appear to be the same.

    I can't even see any similarities between the different pictures. I'm pretty confident that mine are authentic because at the time I did a fair amount of research, but who knows? I think I paid almost $200 for James Fisher from an English broker. As I said, his image is pretty rare.

    The wig may have something to do with it.

    I am definitely not questioning the authenticity of your photo. I previously
    did a little bit of research for a photo of Fisher with no success. Along with Chris, I too question the accuracy of the group photo.

    Group "painting," not photo. :)
