NOT an unseen photo of Syd with a camera

Anyone know anything about this photo? It appears to show Syd Barrett in what looks like a book shop taking photos. I've never seen it before. Is it real? It doesn't look photoshopped to me but I suppose it could be. If it is I don't know where Syd's face came from. I can usually tell straight away if it's been flown in from somewhere else. It's a mystery to me.

"Hi Mark, this is a cropped still from the TV documentary, 'it's so far out it's
straight down' 1967. This scene was filmed in the basement of Indica books. The
photographer is NOT Syd Barrett. If you click on the link and view from around
the 14min 30 second mark you can see the footage from whence this still was

Ah well! Puts that mystery to bed then! Thanks Gary!

This is a still from the documentary 'It's so far out it's straight down'
The location is indica books. The chap with the camera is definitely not Syd...
Click on the link and view from 14.25 on wards for confirmation of this fact.
