Hamlet in "Hamlet" (Mr. H. B. Irving)

From a 1906 Complete Works which includes "an essay on Shakespeare and Bacon by Sir Henry Irving, and a biographical introduction".  He played Hamlet for well over two hundred performances.  A selection of his correspondence on the subject can be found here.  Doesn't he look like a young Wilfred Hyde-White?
