One thought on “A Third Photograph Of Robert Johnson Has Been Discovered”
There is a fourth photo of RJ with Johnny Shines. Although some “experts” declaim it, Big John confirmed its authenticity in a 1989 interview with Jas Obrecht. Besides that, there is an obvious resemblance between that photo and the one with the cigarette, especially when the widely recognized black and gray photo is colorized and animated with modern technology.
