Containing Multitudes Since 2004
To Chaplin, he was always "The Professor."
Nice photograph. They both worked at the Essanay film company at the same time (1915)
I'd read that Essanay hired Linder after Chaplin left for Mutual, hoping lightning would strike twice with comics from overseas(for whatever reason, it didn't). The building in the background looks like Chaplin's own studio near LaBrea and Sunset Boulevard (now the home of Jim Henson Studios), which he built in 1917.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlie_Chaplin_Studios
