Do you starve on the mornings you don't win? Eat soggy cereal? I don't have a guess. Sorry. :)
Hmmm, has to be post WWI as he is wearing a white waist-coat with white tie and tails, and it must be for an event like an opening night, a ball/banquet, or a wedding. Can't be the '60's since hats still seem to be in fashion ...... still working on this. :)
Not Edward Roseman.PJM
Irving Berlin - Its rather late for breakfast isn't it?

So this is the mugshot of someone who by his actions and choices on critical and maybe behind the scenes affairs has changed the course of History? The events that would have played out from his descisions on financial matters will never be fully brought to life,but it is good to know the blogger has a knowledge of the persons place in the course of world events! Have a good day.
Hardly a "mugshot", Chowdog714. :)There's an interesting write-up of Marriner Eccles on the Utah Government site.
