Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

Gem Hats 3 W

Hey, where’s his face?

Not a hat to be seen in this page of the Haberdasher’s book, but there are some nice bowties at least. Note how the top right image is so dark. I can only assume it was due to poor finishing by the photographer and the image has oxidized and faded with time.

The fellow at the lower left immediately made me think of a more modern personage.

Paul Benedict, actor

Paul Benedict, actor

This is Paul Benedict, an American actor best known for roles in The Jefferson’s television show, the Muppet show and movies, and a variety of Christopher guest movies, such as This is Spinal Tap and Waiting for Guffman. The Victorian doppleganger also appears on the first page of the album, wearing a derby hat.

    Isn’t the guy in the bottom right the same as the guy bottom right in the previous post bottom right? Double check them side by side. Same guy with and without a hat I think.

    I think Auntie Kat is right. Odd that there are so many “repeats”.
