I noticed a photo for John Lake born and died in the 1700s. How is this his photo, since cameras were not yet invented during his lifetime?

I know there is the capability (of at least Curators) to remove the photo from this profile, but I wanted to bring it to your attention first that the people in this photo couldn't possibly be the people in the profile since neither lived during the time of cameras.

It is a digitally enhanced copy of a copy of the original canvass painting.
