He'll be the egg man

A doctored photo on glass taken by F.W. Guerin around 1900. Guerin was a commercial photographer working in St. Louis. He died in 1903 after making a living as a photographer for about 27 years. I'm not exactly sure how this odd image was made, but the reverse of the glass is painted. Guerin's label is on the backing paperboard, as is the name "Evans, Artist," from New York. Presumably Evans painted the image. The wood frame is original and in rough condition.
