A photograph by Károly Escher 1

I want to grab a few photographs by Károly Escher, to whom my mother was apprenticed in 1940. There are not many available on the web as far as I can see, but here is one:

ESCHER, Karoly (1890-1966). Tramway. Ca 1929. Gelatin Silver print. First in Hungarian Photography to produce images that are not sharp and never uses a flash. 6 3/4 x 9" Exhibitions: 1938 - Venice Biennale (Wins Silver Medal). 1965 - Retrospective, National Gallery, Budapest. 1995 - Howard Greenberg Gallery, "The Hungarian Circle". (From here.)
