Richard Beyer (° Lüneburg [D], c. 1875) was recorded as a tradesman and photographer resident at this address at the birth of a daughter in February 1910. Sometimes "Bayer" in the directories. Beyer was associated with another photographer named V. Otto at this address, both listed here from 1905 until 1913. In December 1905, newspapers reported that Beyer, who was a hunchback according to one report, fired several shots at Otto after being caught kissing Otto’s wife (Journal de Bruxelles, 29.12.1905). Surprisingly, both men escaped unharmed and seem to have continued their partnership after the ordeal. If peace had indeed been restored, then truth can be just as strange as fiction.
