Bernard Goode was working as a professional photographer at various addresses in Adelaide from 1861, and opened his studio at 69 Rundle Street in October 1864. He is perhaps best known for his novelty multiple portraits, introduced to Adelaide in 1865, among them being his famous double self-portrait, a masterpiece of trick photography:

B. Goode begs to acquaint the public of South Australia that he has now completed his experiments, and offers portraits of the same person in two styles on the same card, which gives a very novel and pleasing effect, as they show no line of separation … Specimens to be seen at his establishment, 69, Rundle-Street.’ (South Australian Register, 29 September 1865)
