That's silent movie star Lillian Gish with Bob on an ocean liner in 1961.  When his relationship with Werner Bandi faded, Bob took up being an "escort" for older wealthier women.  As Bob was quite firmly homosexual, it is doubted any sex was involved.  When Bob aged out of that line of work, he took up department store window dressing and interior decorating.  Didn't I tell you he was gay?

  1. What a story, Jerry! And I'm amazed to learn that Switzerland (partially) legalized homosexuality so early! Do we know if Bob is still living, or when he died?

    1. Bob passed away in 2012, and his collection of over 6,000 photos, some of which had not been previously known, was partially published. As might be expected, only part of that collection was of artistic or historical interest.

  2. Maybe he could even if he didn't care to.

    1. I wouldn't say it was impossible, just unlikely.
