Mystery Men

Today is Saturday, so that means I get to stay home, and we get to have our little Saturday morning contest. Yes, it is Mystery person today. Today, there are three people in the picture, and you have to name all three people correctly. I will not tell you one at a time whether you have a specific person. You have to guess all three correctly at the same time. I will only tell you whether you have all three correct or not.

  2. This response is not correct. A correct response would require all three people to be identified correctly.

  4. Good morning Heather. Nice to see you are up, and in the game.

    Unfortunately, you are not correct.

  5. It looks like Charles Darwin in the middle, with maybe Charles Babbage and maybe Charles Lyell.

    But the background makes me dubious about how right I may be...

  6. Michael,
    Welcome to the contest. Thanks for your entry.

    Your response is not correct.

    Folks, remember, I do not comment if someone gets one or two correct, only whether they person has gotten all three correct.

    Thomas Edison
    John Burroughs

    Thomas Edison should have been pretty easy.

    Congratulations!

  14. Hey, I just found your site and really love it! I have amassed a great collection of pictures from my family - most were my gram's, and she'll be 100 in April. I especially love looking at pictures depicting every day life throughout the 1900s.
    Great site, fun game, and keep it up!

    Thanks!ib

  20. PJM, I love these old pics. I've never milked a cow either. We do have a small herd of dairy goats which I milk twice a day, every day.

    We drink the milk, make cheese, butter and soap.
