Lost and forgotten photos from the past



They say everyone has a twin out there somewhere, and this man’s modern twin is without a doubt Gene Hackman.


If there was going to be a movie about the people in the Leather CdV Album, Gene would definitely be cast as this character, whoever he was. As noted by T. L. Darnell the photographer, clergy photos were half price, so perhaps this is the right honorable Reverend Mr. So-and-so of Cumberland, MD.
