Mystery Man

Today is Saturday, so it is the day I post a picture of a person, and readers try and determine who it is. In past contests, it has taken about 5 minutes to get a winner. In the past, I gave a few clues, because I thought no one could possibly win. Because people have been winning so quickly, this time I am giving no clues at all, and we will see if anyone can figure out who this is. Good luck!

  3. Lisa is the Winner !!!!!!

    I thought for sure that no one would get this, as it is not a well known picture of him, and it was taken later in life. Also, I thought the hat made him look more like a working man.

    Darn. Next week I will have to make it yet harder again.

  9. In fact it is Andrew Canegie. Next week the contest will be harder because people are winning too quickly. Next week will be a challenge so be sure and tune in on Saturday.

  10. Thank you for such a great blog, the photos are fascinating !!
    On a light note though, after a first quick glance I thought this was a photo of Redd Foxx portraying Fred Sanford from "Sanford and Son" :)
    Thanks again for all your hard work.
    Cheers, F.O.
