Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
Looks like Rasputin.
Jersey,That is not going to be a winner.PJM
that is Gluseppe Garabaldi
I'm sorry his last name is Garibaldi
Did I mention how much I hate using lap tops.
Rober,We have a winner.Was it really that easy?PJM
He was great Itianian sailor and even has an air craft carrier named after him.Now you can tell us what Handsome Jack has been up to.I hate using this lap top.
I had to work hard before that Evil Nate Maas got on and answered.This lap top (did I tell you I hate using lap tops) uses BING rather than GOOGLE and it seemed to find things for me faster.
If Nate is the "Evil Nate Maas," then Roger is becoming the "Vile Rogue Roger."
Good job, Roger!And my, what fancy font work we had today.
Dear Vile Rogue Roger (good name, Steve):You are really getting good at this guessing game. Congrats. Tell us more about this Glus guy.If you should ever decide to start a blog, here's an idea for a theme: Old farm equipment. You could tell us about old fresnos and springteeth (is that a name?)PJM: Sorry you lost. I'm traveling around (yes, in this rain) near Leakey, TX. I think 'The Compound' is between me & San Angelo. Have you had any fans stop by for autographs yet?
Sorry, didn't see it was solved.John
Guess I'm going to have to get here quicker if I ever expect to play this game. For what it's worth, I guessed Garibaldi too. Must have been the shirt.
New to the blog, but Garibaldi would have been my guess as well. And I love my laptop AKA "Palpot".
and, me. I'm new to this blog too and I can see I'll never win as I'm not quick enough to the post. But still interesting and fun . . .
Oh Man, the one time I know who it is, and someone gets to it before me...early bird gets the worm! Beginning in the early 19th century with the "Carbonari", Milan was one of the centers of revolt for independence (whether it turned out to be a good idea, or not, is a whole other can o' worms in this, Italy's official 150th anniversary of Unification). The local museum dedicated to the "Risorgimento" has some good paintings of him and some memorabilia (there's some stuff of Napoleon, too), while another museum has fascinating "urban landscape" paintings of Milan during the ages, should this phase of Italian history be interesting.
Oh, indeed, for once that I knew him, someone else had already discovered the name!Giuseppe Garibaldi is a national hero in Italy, everybody would recognize that photo here...My grandmother's brother was named Garibaldi in his honour (ignoring that Garibaldi was his family name!)...But he was killed during WWI, when he was only 18.
