Here is a picture of the 19th century mark in question, with the protagonist in the foreground.

I request that people interested in this issue place their remarks here so people who are uninterested in the topic can avoid them.
John adds: I’ve moved comments over to this new thread, so the referring numbers in the comments themselves may be a little screwy.
