Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
Of course this must be the Shadow
The shadow of Whom, though, that is the question.Ha! throw in a hard one and you all fold like cheap lawn chairs.PJM
Ha! Jimmy Durante? That is all you have?Not even close.PJM
If it is going to be Atomic Week, J Robert Oppenheimer. Trademark hat.
Patrick,Darn, you are right.Yes indeed it is Robert Oppenheimer.If I had started with this picture would anyone have gotten it?I think not.PJM
I would have not got it.I glad Patrick got it, good job
Good job Patrick,I guess there is no victory breakfast for PJMmight there be a round 4 ?
The nose knows: Jimmy Durante!
How about Werner VonBraun?
If this is leading up to an atomic week, I have to say this. My high school calculus teacher was one of the young fellows who loaded the first bomb onto Tibbets' plane. A coworker I had back around 1970 was one of the recipients of that bomb. She was 12 at the time of the blast and a very sweet person who held no grudge against us. Odd how life works in circles.
Jimmy Durante would have been my best guess, too, but the nose wasn't big enough. "Fold like cheap lawn chairs..." ha ha ha, loved that one, an oldie, but a goodie. I am so amazed that anyone identified this person. Enjoy your blog and everyone's comments, thanks!
