I thought you might like to meet the excellent Mushroom Lady, one of my presiding kitchen god(desse)s. She is by a photographer called Ernest Bloch, taken 1912. She is on a postcard, and I have her in a little frame on the kitchen wall. I love the mushroomishness of her hat. It says she is Swiss, but I think she is direct from the Brothers Grimm.
Update: I have been looking for more information on "a photographer called Ernest Bloch" for some time. I recently discovered, by reading a wikipedia article more carefully, that the reason he is obscure, is that he isn't obscure at all. He is the famous composer Ernest Bloch, who also had an interest in photography.
