Photoshop in 1958??

Toronto. A few days back, my friend, George Dunbar, sent me this picture from the Miscellany column, page 96 of the August 18th, 1958 issue of LIFE magazine. The photo shows how careful framing can trick the eye – just like Photoshop can decades later on a whole new technology (digital).

In this case, it was purported to be in-camera magic, not the more common darkroom type of which all those of a certain age can verify, often from personal experience.
