Wealthy, yes. Old picture, yes. Leader, yes. British, No.

Gravdigr 02-24-2017 11:01 AM

Is it Queen Beatrix?

xoxoxoBruce 02-24-2017 11:42 AM

Nope, American.


Breeching was the occasion when a small boy was first dressed in breeches or trousers. From the mid-16th century[1] until the late 19th or early 20th century, young boys in the Western world were unbreeched and wore gowns or dresses until an age that varied between two and eight.[2] Various forms of relatively subtle differences usually enabled others to tell little boys from little girls, in codes that modern art historians are able to understand.

Eleanor Roosevelt?

glatt 02-24-2017 12:23 PM

Is that the famous J. Edgar Hoover in a dress photo?

xoxoxoBruce 02-24-2017 12:39 PM

Carruthers is very close. ;)

Must be FDR, on that basis! ;)

Good Heavens! :)

Dresses for boys, what will those zany late Victorians think up next?

xoxoxoBruce 02-24-2017 05:57 PM

A lot easier to get on and off than pants with a button, zipper, and belt.
That's why kilts are still popular. :blush:

Since the last one I gave you was fastball, here's an easy looper over the plate. Who's the dude in the middle. If you happen to have the phone numbers of either of the girls, I'll accept that. :blush:

Gravdigr 03-11-2017 05:14 PM

Neil deGrasse Tyson?

The girls' numbers are 7, both of them.

xoxoxoBruce 03-11-2017 07:20 PM

Yes! :notworthy

This was hard for me because she looks exactly like an early girlfriend, but that shouldn't hinder you...

Gravdigr 03-20-2017 01:59 AM

Helen Mirren?

xoxoxoBruce 03-20-2017 02:22 AM

Yes, yes it is. :beer:

Gravdigr 03-20-2017 05:15 PM

She's still a fairly good looking dame, too.

Pardon, me, Dame.

Who is the boy with his Mum and Dad?

fargon 03-21-2017 04:51 PM

Elvis Presley?

xoxoxoBruce 03-21-2017 04:56 PM

Yes, how'd you know that?

fargon 03-21-2017 04:57 PM

I cheated.

OK smart guys, who is this dude?

Gravdigr 03-22-2017 03:36 PM

That looks like one of those pics they come up with that's averaged an entire country's men's faces to come up with the Average Joe.

Not our Average Joe, who is anything but average.

Carruthers 03-22-2017 03:40 PM

I saw that pic in a UK newspaper the other day, but I'm damned if I can remember anything more than that.

Er, that's all really...

glatt 03-22-2017 04:36 PM

This one is difficult.

Just sayin.

xoxoxoBruce 03-22-2017 05:35 PM

Yes, it's a payback for Elvis. :lol2:

Clue - He's dead.

fargon 03-22-2017 05:38 PM
Neener, Neener

footfootfoot 03-22-2017 06:26 PM

I'm not so sure about what the boffins think. Just look at any old photos, people don't look like that as much anymore. I've got a set of books from this August Sander exhibition. Look at the faces, to me, they seem more substantial and rugged.

xoxoxoBruce 03-22-2017 06:29 PM

Cheater wins again.

Undertoad 04-09-2017 05:28 PM

Who is?

BigV 04-09-2017 09:55 PM

nice jag

Clodfobble 04-09-2017 10:50 PM

Eddie Vedder? I only say that because Pearl Jam just got into the Hall of Fame...

Undertoad 04-10-2017 07:22 AM

no ma'am.

This gentleman is not born in the US of A

Flint 04-10-2017 11:32 AM

Neil Gorsuch.

footfootfoot 04-10-2017 01:43 PM

Ben Affleck?

Gravdigr 04-10-2017 02:02 PM

He looks very familiar.

That's a pretty small weener.:neutral:

Undertoad 04-10-2017 03:53 PM

hint, like almost everything in this world, this one is not political

Flint 04-10-2017 04:03 PM

like almost everything in this world,
we're expected not to believe what we can see with our own eyes ??

it's Neil Gorsuch, look at the evidence !! :tinfoil:

Gravdigr 04-10-2017 04:49 PM

Please check your pill count.

Flint 04-10-2017 06:10 PM

Check your post count, happy fingers.

Undertoad 04-10-2017 08:43 PM

You don't recognize him because normally he wears more eye makeup.

Clodfobble 04-10-2017 09:57 PM

Boy George?

Undertoad 04-10-2017 10:23 PM

so close! but no color; hint 2, early on he was guitarist for the band fronted by this lady, and arguably his future hair and makeup came out of her school of thought.

Clodfobble 04-11-2017 12:48 AM

I mean... you're making me think Alice Cooper with the visual hints, but he's not British. I don't know my overseas rockers at all.

Pico and ME 04-11-2017 12:53 AM

Robert Smith.

Undertoad 04-11-2017 01:18 AM

That is CORRECT!

IF you google image search "young robert smith" you see the transition, and it's interesting. He was guitarist for Siouxie and the Banshees in 1980, and again in 1982-84, but did not want to be in two bands at once. And fight over the hairspray.

Pico and ME 04-11-2017 01:25 AM

At first I looked into the Kiss British born there. Then, after a while, I Googled punk rockers (can't remember why), and she showed up and that's all it took.

Pico and ME 04-11-2017 01:26 AM

I was never a Cure fan, or punk rocker fan.

Gravdigr 04-11-2017 02:51 AM

I started to give the clue "He once punched Barbra Streisand."

On South Park, Robert Smith was the only one that could conquer MechaBarbraStreisand, in the form of Smithra. His attack was 'robot punch'.

Flint 04-11-2017 11:29 AM

Neil Gorsuch is Robert Smith ??!

I already cheated.

Wouldn't have had a clue.

They're going for the guy here, correct?
