Mystery Persons

Today is Saturday, and that is the day that I post a picture and you have to figure out who is in the picture. Today, you have to identify both people. A winning response requires both people to be identified correctly. If you miss one, and get one right, I will tell you that you missed one, but I wont tell you which one you missed. So, the winner is the person who first identifies both people correctly. Oh, and I am not going to tell you what year the picture was taken. Let the games begin!

  2. Good Morning Heather, nice of you to join us.

    BUT, you are not correct in your guess.

  4. WOW Rick, you are good. Yes we have a winner.

    I thought this would be a hard one, since the somewhat profile view of Chaplin does not show him as we normally think of him.

    Sousa is famous as a name, but I did not think many people would know what he looked like.

    Excellent work!

  5. Sometimes you look at these things for hours and cant figure them out, and sometimes it just hits you right off the bat.

  6. Oh Rick, you beat me! I just found Sousa's picture!

  7. One good clue was probably the little baton they are holding. That should have pointed towards sousa. Chaplin was probably harder.

  9. Good one, Rick. Darn Pacific Time Zone got me again, but I don't know if I would have guessed this one right off.

  10. I was so excited when I found Sousa's picture I nearly jumped right out of my chair. But I am sure I wouldn't have gotten Charlie Chaplin. He looks very different here than the pictures I've seen of him. Rick you are awesome!

  13. I never know the answers on Saturdays - I would have gotten Sousa - the baton.
    But, that's it.

  15. I love this photograph.
    I knew Sousa right away but Chaplin took me some time to identify.
    It's interesting seeing the two of them together, with their individual contributions to their own art forms. Fantastic picture, and a bit of a stumper too...

    Great job.

  16. I did not even know that the two men ever had met. I genuinely thought that Sousa had died in the 1880's (When Chaplin was born). Both were tops in their game.

  17. Fred Armison and Wolf Blitzer? - Oh wait, I see its been solved. Oh well...
