I didn't understate the case, but called it as it is - that's not "garbage" by any means. If you can't see that, it's too bad.

Ive seen that before-I guess this is the only image of him then. I wonder when this was drawn?

Sketch of Bury from The Dundee Courier, 12 February 1889. He had dark hair and a beard, was 5 foot 3½ inches (1.61 m) tall, and weighed less than 10 stone (64 kg).[1]

Thanks Harry
well I guess he must have grown that beard out since the Kelly murder.

wonder if he was trying to change his appearance?

Judging by his chin and lower lip, it looks he may have had an elongated jaw, of the type that some men feel compelled to "minimise" by a beard. If so, it may well be the case that he'd worn that beard for many years.
